3rd Grade – Creative Arcade

For our final project, the third grade students worked with a partner(s) to create their very own game.  Using variables that they learned in the last lesson, such as setting a timer and keeping score, students designed their game.  Hopscotch can be a complicated program to use and I am proud of the determination that our students showed in creating their games.

2nd Grade – Rolling Sums Game

The second grade classes used all of their STEAM skills to play the rolling sums game.  The object:  using addition and/or subtraction with the 5 cards you are dealt, come as close as possible to the number on the dice without going over.  We used our goal keeper program that we designed in Scratch Jr. to keep track of the score.  First one to the goal wins!


1st Grade – Creating Animated Stories

Our final project in the Animated Storytelling unit was for students to work in pairs to come up with their own animated story.  Each student decided on characters, setting, problem, and solution and wrote down these ideas in their Launch Log.  They were able to present their wonderful stories to then entire class using AirPlay and I have posted a few samples below!


Kindergarten – Oh, the Places You’ll Go!

“If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?”  That was the question posed to our kindergarten classes, inspired by the Dr. Seuss book “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!”  Thanks to a green screen, we were able to travel to those special places!  Watch the videos below to see our travels!
