Incredible iPads

My students need iPads and protective cases to operate FIRST LEGO League Jr. in the classroom. These extra iPads will allow for smaller groups sizes and more students to be an active participant in FLL.

My Students

I teach wonderful 4th graders in a large Title 1 school of over 700 students! Our school is one of 14 elementary schools in the largest school district in New Hampshire. Our students come from a variety of economic and ethnic backgrounds. Having quality, interesting and appropriate materials for student use is a constant quest, as is money for resources.

We share a love of learning and a strong community.

My students enter the classroom each morning with positivity, hope, and an eagerness to learn. Each day, they work hard to understand new math and reading concepts. Their joy when they master a focus area is overwhelming and encouraging.

My Project

In our district, all 4th grade students participate in FIRST LEGO League Jr. FIRST LEGO League Jr. inspires students through science and technology. Students are encouraged to research and learn about a real world problem, and then challenged to come up with a solution. Then they design, build, and program a Lego model to show their learning.

Students need use of the iPads to research their real world problem and help find a solution.

Then using the Lego WeDo 2.0 app on the iPad, they program their Lego model using the coding software to make the motorized parts of their project come to life! Students can program their models to move, spin, go forward or backward, stop, make sounds, and so much more!

To finalize the projects, student work is showcased during an in school event, where parents, students and others are invited to come celebrate our students hard work. During this event the iPads are needed with the Lego model to show their research and share how they used the coding software to make their Lego model come to life! This is also a nice chance for students to practice public speaking.

FIRST LEGO League Jr. is all about teamwork, sharing, helping others and respect! Having the extra iPads will allow for smaller groups sizes and allow for all students to shine where they may have been sitting back letting others do the work in larger groups.
