My students are full of life and energy. They are from a small, rural town where most families struggle financially. The students are like one, big family as most of them have been together in their grade-level cohort since kindergarten.
This is my students' last year at our school before they head off to 6th grade and begin their middle school careers.
Our classroom is a hive of activity. We have many budding naturalists and engineers, as well as some aspiring programmers and artists. I love my students!
I would love to have these Makey Makey invention kits so I can provide my students with some amazing engineering design project experiences. We will use them all the time to learn, create and show what we've learned.
Makey Makeys are simple and fun to use to 'invent' great projects, allowing students to "show what they know" in many creative and exciting ways.
Students will be able to connect programs they build using Scratch@MIT to student-made interactive posters, games or books. They will even be able to build controllers using bananas or Playdough - any conductive material will do!
