Here is a quick glimpse into what Design Lab looks like this month.
Here is a quick look into what we have going on in the SP Design Lab.
This week and next week our students will be visiting the Design Lab to learn about all of the new choices that will be offered on Wednesday and Friday lunch recess.
Manuel Herrera created this awesome Bloxels planning sheet and another educator on Twitter created a board for students to color before creating which he shared so I mashed the two resources together for those students who this will meet their planning needs.
This week our second grade authors created more of their story while their fifth grade coauthor helped shape the original story. Last week each partnership designed their main characters using the draw feature in Morphi and uploading it directly to our Thingiverse account. The 3D printer printed non stop for several days bringing characters to life. The last touches were put on the characters using Sharpies to add color and detail. This activity was inspired by Karen Bosch and really helped both authors bond together over their story coming to life.
The story plan designed by Manuel Herrera is being used in paper form by our second graders and then the fifth grade partner is capturing the story into digital form prior to determining the final publishing format which many plan on using Bloxels.
Sometimes words can't capture the feeling of what happens at lunch recess every Wednesday and Friday in our LMC.
