Sara E Goode and the Convertible Bed
Inspired by the innovative work of Sara E. Goode, design a piece of furniture that can be converted from one purpose to another, completely different purpose.
If you have an idea for any other convertible object (other than just furniture) that's OK too!
Show us a model and tell us how your invention works! https://flipgrid.com/dcb18874
Rube Goldberg Challenge
Design and build a wacky Rube Goldberg to perform a simple task. (See video for suggestions.) Your machine should have multiple steps and remember that force can only be added to the machine to set it in motion. Share your design at https://flipgrid.com/a0920484
2021 Hour of Code
When you finish your Hour of Code, tell us all School-wide December 10 at 8:00 am
Pre-K through 2nd Grade
Since these kids are still new to school, it makes sense to take them through the Pre-reader course (https://studio.code.org/s/pre-express-2021) Start with sequencing, and go as far as you can in an hour. If some kids take off and go ahead, let them! Self-paced is best, but some kids may need a hand to hold.
Most of these guys have some experience with coding, so they should be able to move at their own pace. Have them get to code.org through Clever, and direct them to the Start Learning button. Then they scroll down to Hour of Code and choose an activity. Encourage them to pick one and stick with it, since the tasks become more complex as they progress.
Let us know if we can help in any way!
