Day 5 ~ More Brush Bots...
We took out our brush bots from last week and added some craft items and "found" items to modify them. It took some patience to determine how to get the add-ons attached to the brush bots. Some students found that small rubber bands, tape, or glue worked best.
|One student added a marker so the brush bot|
would draw on the paper.
Part of the fun of the brush bots was the fact that these little vibrating creations were unexpected - the students didn't know what they would do and where they might go, which was also what made them extremely fun!
..........and some bridge building with Sphero
I brought my Sphero to school on Day 5 and we had a little fun with it during our sign-in/snack time. After a few of the students became frustrated with their brush bots (we had a few battery issues), I challenged them to build a bridge for Sphero to drive over (without crashing to the floor). So some students gathered up handfuls of craft sticks and bottles of wood glue to design and created some bridges.
Day 6 and 7 ~ Makey Makey
|If different students were holding parts of the Makey Makey,|
they made a connection by High 5's which was a neat realization!
|Marshmallows worked, but proved to be a |
little too sticky for the clips.
|Everyone in the group took part to make the game work!|
|This student kept working on the online piano|
after the rest of his group moved on to another task.
He made it work with a combo of carrots and pennies. :)
