Ranjita and John’s 4th graders worked on their Express Course at code.org, and 6th graders worked on graphing. Students from Molly’s class also did graphing, since we had last Monday off. On Tuesday, 4th and 5th graders from Sonja’s class celebrated Black History Month by creating Tynker projects featuring a remarkable person from history. Some students worked on iPads, while others used laptops. When they were finished, one group designed their own robot launcher challenge. Trish’s class explored Tynker coding options, including Augmented Reality, and programmed Sphero Spark and Ollie robots. Students continue to work on StoryboardThat whenever they have the opportunity.
This week was all about graphing. 4th graders are learning how to keep track of data using Numbers spreadsheets for the first time. This is quite a jump from the survey tallies that they did in 6-9. 5th graders continue to use Numbers for charts and graphs, but 6th graders use Google Sheets. One 6th grade group graphed the reliability of a robot launcher!
In our video, you will see an awesome animation made by Jackson H., and 4th graders programming Dash robots to sketch. In our slide show, you will see student work focused on concepts of kindness. 6th graders created a Kindess PSA while learning Google Drawing, while 4th and 5th graders drew on their expertise with Pages.
This week’s video, featuring Tuesday Afterschool WeDo Robotics, is at the end of this post.
During the week, some 4th and 5th grade students learned about Chinese history and inventions while creating a fun, interactive project using Tynker.
Other 4th graders participated in an internet scavenger hunt to find out the Reasons for the Seasons.
6th grade students are learning how to use Google Sheets.
Two groups of students asked to learn how to create a quiz game in Scratch for their upcoming Science Festival!
Tuesday WeDo Robotics Video!!
What an incredible week!! Our video features an amazing animation independently produced by Phineas and Eleanor, Olive’s slideshow of 7th graders working during Junior High CS Robotics Studio, and some footage of Tuesday Afterschool WeDo Robotics. In other news, 9-12 students worked on StoryBoardThat, Eleanor used Tinkercad to design a special button for her brother, and the building of the Piper Computers has begun!!
