The purpose of this project is two-fold: first, to encourage students to make the reading of poetry a creative act; and, second, to help students appreciate particular literary devices in their functions as semaphores or interpretive signals. Those devices that are about the imagery of a poem (metaphor, simile, personification, description) can be thought of as magnifying glasses: we see most clearly that upon which the poet focuses our gaze. Similarly, those poetic devices that are about the sound of the poem (alliteration, consonance, enjambment, onomatopoeia, and repetition) can be thought of as volume buttons or amplifiers: we hear most clearly what the poet makes us listen to most attentively.
Students discover engineering and use the design thinking process to create prototypes to show their learning about engineering.
Design and build extensions onto the Driving Base and program it to complete two tasks. Students will learn and practice engineering and manufacturing techniques, cooperation and teamwork skills as they build and code an Autonomous Mobile Robot.
Students construct a bridge that will get Cupid to his destination and withstand all of his Valentines. They will build a bridge with only candy hearts and toothpicks.
Each group will build a different building 2-level wing of the team's school in one day but can only use the materials provided to the team. Each wing must include several classrooms for drones to survey and land.
Presentation provides various ways teachers can incorporate drones into the 4 major disciplines of the curriculum.
Students will engineer a house that can withstand the force of a hurricane. Students will think about wind forces and the structures of houses to create their house using certain materials.
To create a map that leads to a new “imaginary” continent. Then students will code spheros to travel a route they created.
Driving Question: Reading The Last Mapmaker, by Christina Soontornvat students will learn about what goes into making a map of a new territory. Student will take that new knowledge about the importance of map making vs. blindly following GPS
How did people get from one place to another before GPS and how do people create maps
3-6 Teacher directions to help educators understand and use the Mooresville Online Academy Grant modules with students.
Explore what coding is and create your own game without using a computer!
Investigate what coding is and use the design thinking process to create your own game, without a computer!
Put the events in the correct sequence and have Olive, the Reindeer (BeeBot) travel through the story. Can you create a maze for Olive and the other reindeer to help Santa deliver Christmas presents?
Students will plan and design a rocket that will travel the greatest distance. Students will consider what they know about rockets, energy, lengths and distances while using a budget to build their rockets.
This will force a copy of a simple implementation tracker form that you can edit and use as you begin to roll out activities in your district.
In this lesson students will learn about electromagnetic energy through a female engineer who invented frequency hopping that is used by so many devices we use daily. Students will explore and solve a real world problem by designing a device to block or build a stronger Wi-Fi signals. Each team will record their work with Flip.
Driving Questions / Scenario (what are we trying to solve or improve?)
What is the electromagnetic spectrum?
Which part of the electromagnetic spectrum does Wi-Fi use?
What materials do you think will block a Wi-Fi signal? What materials do you think will let a Wi-Fi signal pass through?
