Day 1 Box 1
In an effort to find time to allow students to create and be inventors, I have created the Maker space box challenge! A student or pair of students are given a box that includes 6 items. They have to use each of the items when creating their new product. They can choose to add any additional items. There is a time limit of 15 minutes to keep everyone focused and on task. They are given a choice of three things to make. For example, today I had the list of three objectives read: Game controller, camera, and microphone.
Watching the process and intensity is amazing. I discovered that I have some creative students! Watch the video bellow to enjoy the process of how the first challenge unfolded! The cool thing is that in Laura Flemming’s book, “World’s of Making”, I was made aware that the maker space can work hand in hand with the Common Core! I can see so many options for this!
