4th graders have been building with Lego WeDo's, and have created some super projects. Using the WeDo software program we animated them using the iPad app "Green Screen by DoInk". The first movie shows the student's working on the projects and the final two are the green screen animations!

The 5th graders have been creating Timelines showing their favorite books, from Kindergarten until now. This has been a collaborative lesson from both library and technology. They used the ReadWriteThink website and took pictures of the books using the Chrome Books. They learned how to use the camera, save the pictures to their Google Drive and create the timelines. Great project, and here is a Google Slideshow of some of their hard work.
What fun, what fun. Today the 4th graders continued on their quest of inventing with Little Bits. They created bubbles and created motorized drawing devices using their very creative minds and the Little Bits circuitry. Congrats to the great working and non-working projects, failure is part of the STEAM process!Enjoy the video
