Mrs. Fuglestad from Arlington Heights IL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need 25 Touch Points, LEDs, 6 conductive paint pens, copper tape, batteries, and foam core to create amazing interactive art with light up parts from circuits they build themselves.
We LOVE to make things in my classroom so it is no surprise that we would want to join the maker movement and learn how to tinker while making art. Learning is fun, engaging, innovative, and exciting in our room, so we're always looking for innovative ideas that energize students.
Every kindergartener through fifth grader comes to the art room each week in our suburban public school.
My students are talented, curious, and creative little people who aren't afraid of taking risks, trying their best, and showing the world what they've created through our art room blog and online art gallery.
We want to join the maker movement and add STEAM (adding ART to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) to our program. We want to learn about electricity while constructing an artistic paper circuit. Students will design and paint a robot on their foam board then flip it over to design a circuit that will light up an LED with a battery on the robot. Each student will need to combine their creativity and problem-solving skills to complete this super exciting project idea.
This project will definitely encourage tinkering and "think"ering in my students as they combine their creativity and problem-solving to make an interactive light up piece of art.
The thrill of lighting the LED will hopefully light up many more ideas now and in the future.
