Students discover engineering and use the design thinking process to create prototypes to show their learning about engineering.
This lesson remix contain a unique student view that can be used for virtual/distance learning situations. Doo Wop's musical and social roots point to a long history of vocal harmony in American culture, particularly in African-American communities. Social singing provided entertainment in barbershops, bars, schools, churches, theaters, and other communal spaces. Some of the musical precedents students will consider in this lesson include the barbershop quartets that flourished from the 1890s through World War I; the Pop vocal groups such as the Mills Brothers that topped the charts in the 1920s, 30s, and 40s; and the Gospel singers who made harmonizing a spiritual practice throughout the early twentieth century.
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.
Students will have to decide and plan which items they want Dash to go after during a game demonstrating the effects of supply, demand, and scarcity.
Presentation provides various ways teachers can incorporate drones into the 4 major disciplines of the curriculum.
In this lesson students work in collaborative groups to collect, represent, and interpret numerical data that they generate by using Sphero robots to knock down bowling pins!
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.
Students will use bots (Sphero Indi or Beebots) to make a shape demonstrating not only their understanding of the attributes of shapes but of the technology required to apply it.
This is an example of the Landing Page I used for my virtual Kindergarten class. Students and families used this page to access Zoom meetings, Google Classroom page, and more. It includes important links for student activities and various ways to contact the teacher.
Make a map that leads to a new continent. Students will code a Sphero to travel the path of the map.
