Bridges-Heirloom Lesson

This week in Bridges, the students and the seniors shared heirlooms and traditions. Either a picture or the actual heirloom was brought in to be discussed. Students and seniors shared traditions that their family celebrate. We also filled in maps to show where we came from. It is so interesting to see the colorful maps and all the places the seniors and students come from. Here are a few pictures of the lesson.

Day 3: Sphero Dancing

The kids had some fun with the Spheros today. First, they created their own music using the app Garage Band. Then they created a series of code that programmed the Sphero to "dance" to the music. Today I have a few videos of the hot moves!

Videos are coding from:
Kritika
Fatima and Maddy
Lacey and Izzy

Day 2: Sphero Shape Programming

Yesterday the kids continued their work with the Spheros. Using the shapes on the floor, the students had to program code that made their Sphero travel along the tape outline. I included a video of Tyler and Josh who were successful in their programming.

Day 1: Sphero Fun

We are taking math into the Learning Commons this week. The kids are learning about coding and patterns while playing with tiny robots called Spheros. Here are a few pictures from today.
