Kindergarten-2nd grade:

Listen to the book, “What to do with a box?” by Heather Moeller with this link:

I am going to try to SeeSaw you with me reading that book so you can pick which one you want to watch.

Then what can you make with a box or boxes.  You can use construction paper, paint, tape, glue, scissors, markers or whatever supplies you need.  If you do not have a box or boxes, you can draw a picture of what you would make.  Please post a picture or a video on SeeSaw or email me at tawolf@d47.org.  I can’t wait to see what you will create from a box or boxes.

 

3rd grade:

We were talking about simple machines and making them with the Vex pieces.  Watch a Simple Machine Song: https://youtu.be/iQu3GY509ZM to help remind you of all of them.

Can you make a compound machine using at least 2 of them?   How many simple machines can you include in your compound machine?  You can use Legos, recyclables materials, blocks, Knex, or any supplies that you want to use.  If you do not have any supplies or materials to use, you can draw a picture or use Google Drawing.  I will have ways for you to share it on the STEM Google Classroom.  Or you can have your parents email it to me at tawolf@d47.org.  I can’t wait to see what you will create with the materials that you have at home.

 

Optional activity:

There will be a coding assignment in Tynker if you would rather code.  It starts easy and gets trickier.  It might help you to learn some new coding concepts.

 

4th grade:

We were talking about energy and how it can change to other types of energy.  This week, you can watch either of these links on this windmill in Africa.  

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind: https://youtu.be/sDXAf_p5FjU

William and the Windmill: https://youtu.be/BzlgyDAMupw

The links will also be in your Google Classroom STEM.  With permission from your parents, find materials to build your own windmill.  Can it move when there is wind?  There will be a Flipgrid to share your windmill or your parents can send a picture or video to me at tawolf@d47.org.  I will have options on how to share or drawing choices in your STEM Google Classroom.

5th grade:

 

I am so excited!  Vex has made a VR version of our robot that we were using in class.  Well, it is even better than the one that we built.  You will be exploring this week at 

https://vr.vex.com/ to code the virtual robot.  You can go into Google Classroom STEM to see a slideshow that will help you navigate that new site.  I will also be posting an optional coding assignment on Tynker if that interests you.
