This Spring, Plymouth Elementary students learned about the Engineering and Design Process and used it to create and design some projects of their own within our "Creating and Design Unit."
Students in kindergarten learned about and explored the properties of a closed circuit.Our kindergarteners used what they learned to design and create their own working circuits using copper tape, led lights and cell batteries to take home.
First grade students reviewed what they knew about closed circuits and learned about the 3-D printing process.Students learned to use the morphi app to create and design their own 3-D projects to take home on our brand new Ultimaker 3-D printer!
Students in second grade used what they knew about closed circuits to use Makey-Makey kits with school laptops to learn about testing circuits with conductive and non-conductive materials.Our second graders collaborated with one another to use what they learned to create and design working game controllers with Makey-Makey.
Third graders at Plymouth Elementary put all of their knowledge of closed circuits to the test and deepened their understanding of the Engineering and Design Process to build with Little Bits.Students worked together in small teams to design and create Little Bits modules that would solve suggested real-world problems in the classroom.
