Celebrate Black Teachers and Students

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Project

My students are great learners, but sometimes, they do not talk enough to each other. I think that is a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The individual work ethic is good, but the collaboration could be better. The board games will enable our students to communicate freely with each other for a quick opener or ending of class. Our raspberry pi works, but is connected to a station in the room. This laptop enclosure will make our Rpi portable, and more students can use it. We can also use the ink for our classroom printer.

These supplies will help bring out the fun and laughter missing in class, while enabling students to print projects using the Raspberry Pi laptop case.

These will make a great addition to our classroom.
