2nd-5th Grade Students have been busy programming Dash in the Media Center. Our first lesson focused on learning how to code Dash using the Blockly app, a drag and drop coding tool developed by Google. Students programmed Dash to drive on a grid to designated spots and added animations, sounds and lights. Our second lesson uses Dash Challenge Cards which bring coding to life through hands-on challenges.
K and 1st Grade Students researched Famous African American using PebbleGo to celebrate Black History Month. They shared what they learned by making Biography Pyramids. We will also use PebbleGo to learn about plants in the month of March and students will plant seeds in the Discovery Lab which will then be transferred to our school garden after Spring Break. I can't wait to see all of the pretty plants and flowers!
