This week you will finish building your Sphero boats, next Monday we will be racing them.
Have a great fall break! I'll see you next week.
This week your group will be presenting your bridges and Sphero chariots that will carry 10 pieces of gold across the pond. Make sure to have several trial runs before hand.
This week you will continue to create your bridges made out of recyclable material. Your bridges must hold the weight of the Sphero carrying 10 pieces of gold.
This week we will be putting your fingers to work as we master our keyboarding skills with Nitro Type!
This week you will use the Creature Garden app to create your own animal. You can create a land, sea or air animal. Once your animal has been created, you must "test" your animal to see if it would survive in nature. Your animal must have a 70% chance of survival before moving on. Next you can race your creatures through obstacle courses, see if they will (or won’t!) walk, swim, and fly, and cross creatures to make new breeds.
This week you will continue to work on researching and gathering data for your ecology project. Make sure to be using the resources in Newsela.
This week we will be presenting our Theory of Games project, take some time to learn about a new game from one of your peers and give it a try.
