In this session, participants will learn how our first and second graders came together to playfully learn through tactile, hands-on projects that provided the skills to start them on the road to becoming successful lifelong learners. Using the funds we received through the Chris Nelson Memorial Grant, we created activities for our students to holistically learn specific content areas while blending in collaboration, critical thinking, creativity, and communication. With 'Our Community' as the base, we wrote stories using a comic strip software program, Story Visualizer; programmed our BeeBot robots to find important places in the town and village where we live; built our town with our Legos StoryStarter and Community Figure Kits; and got our cardboard robots (created with our art teacher) moving on a platform powered by our LittleBits STEAM and Gizmos and Gadgets Kits. Let us share with you the amazing results while you have some fun too! (Presenter(s): Jimi Emery, Education Tech Integrator/Coordinator, Josiah Bartlett School, and Kim Couture, Bartlett)
