Second grade used ChatterPix kids to wrap up their Martin Luther King Jr. unit. Here is one video.
First graders enjoyed learning how shadows were formed and creating their own shadow art. This was based on the work of Tim Noble and Sue Webster.
Students were given the following materials and asked to create a sculpture.
Here they are creating.
This is one of the finished products. The students told me that their shadow looked like 3 people dancing together.
During the month of December students in grades 1-5 will be introduced to coding. Students in grades 3-5 will be going onto code.org and using code to complete some computer programs.
