Today students in Ms. Caithamer and Ms. Minter's classrooms wrapped up their paper slide videos using Osmo Masterpiece. Using Flipgrid, they are sharing these videos with their partners in Australia. On Friday, students will be using Makers Empire to create their 3D artifact. Check out some final paper slide videos!
Today Ms. Caithamer's 5th graders and Ms. Minter's 4th graders worked on creating their paper slide videos using Osmo Masterpiece. Next week we will be using Makers Empire to design the 3D artifact as well as Flipgrid to record the paper slide videos to share with our Australian partners.
Grade 5 - U.S. History
Grade 4 - Transportation
In a collaboration between art and technology, Ms. Christenson and I used Morphi to make student designs come to life. Each kindergarten student drew an animal on white paper and outlined the animal with black marker. I then photocopied the designs into a jpeg file and converted them into .stl files using my desktop version of Morphi. We have the Morphi app but not enough for all of our K students so having a teacher desktop version of Morphi is very handy.
In Art, students painted their design and created a habitat for their animal. The googly eyes are the final touch!
This week Ms. Minter's 4th graders connected with our partner class in Adelaide, Australia to introduce themselves using Flipgrid and learn about how transportation impacts our lives.
Almost all of our classrooms have designed and printed using Makers Empire this school year. Thanks for the donation from The Fitchburg Block Party, we were able to purchase Makers Empire and upgrade our 3D printer. The printer has been very busy. Currently the MakerBot has 6 more classes to print before the end of the school year. Check out the designs from Ms. Murphy's students.
Today starts Day 1 of our Global Design Project with our partner school St Michaels College in Australia. Ms. Caithamer's 5th graders and Ms. Minter's 4th graders will be introducing themselves via Flipgrid videos. We can't wait to connect and design together using Makers Empire.
Today students used Bloxel Story Builder Cards to create a story built only around dialogue between the characters in their story.
