5th Graders created the most awesome Digital Superheroes to help teach other Leos how to be safe and smart while using the Internet. Be sure to stop by the Media Center to check out a few! To see all of their amazing work, check out this LINK.
2nd and 3rd graders worked in pairs to build a structure that would hold the weight of a small stuffed animal. They could only use 20 Index cards and 1 sheet of sticker dots. This was not an easy challenge! They showed GRIT, creativity, and excellent communication as they worked through the problem.
Check out these successful structures:
1st graders practiced teamwork and engineering skills by building a pipe cleaner structure that would hold the weight of a stuffed animal.
Check out some of their structures here.
Students in grades 1-5 have been working hard to learn how to be safe and smart online and be "Digital Superheroes."
1st graders have learned to only visit websites that are safe for kids.
2nd graders learned about what information is safe to share online and what should be kept private. Check out their Digital Footprints here!
3rd graders played a fun board game to learn how to make smart and safe choices when online and are working on showing their learning in a flip book.
4th graders learned some tips from a Digital Citizen toolbox and applied their learning by creating class posters.
5th graders learned to be Internet Awesome and will soon be designing Digital Superheroes!
3rd graders wrapped up the year by building and coding with our Lego We Do kits. They applied all the skills they have learned this year in programming and engineering.
Check out this video to see some of their builds in action!
After reading the story Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, 2nd graders designed an accessory for their Ozobot to help clean up the town of Chewandswallow. They tested their prototypes on a rectangular track using beads to represent the food. Many groups had to redesign their accessories after testing and analyzing how well they did or did not work.

5th graders used 3D Pens to design a prosthesis for their "injured animal" or wind-up bath toy. They secured it with Duct tape and tested it to see if it would swim in the tub of water.
Check out this video to see some of their animals in action!
1st Graders are creating maps for their Ozobots to explore. After learning about how cartographers use symbols to represent places on a map, they created symbols for 5 places they want their Ozobot to visit in their "town." They are working on creating a path with codes for the Ozobot to follow as it travels from place to place.
These students took the assignment to the next level and created a car for Ozobot too!
February 7 was "Global Day of Play" and "No one plays alone" day for our It Starts with Hello program. So, 4th graders played today during their media center time. It was a day of smiles, teamwork, and laughter ... and no electronics! The most popular activity was fort building! It required a great deal of communication and teamwork to build some of these elaborate forts. And, they even neatly folded all those sheets at the end of class!
Maker Club created Cube Creatures with our new 3D Start pens. I love their creativity!
4th and 5th grade after school Maker Club students build with K'Nex, create clay models, make paper circuits, design cars, and more!
1st and 2nd graders learn to use the different coding blocks in Scratch Jr.
2nd graders practice their programming skills and learn about loops in Code.org.
4th graders work on their Digital Citizenship awareness posters.
5th graders work on their Digital Superheros.
