Would You Rather?

Play the game “Scoot” by moving around the room to different iPads and answering a Would You Rather? question (see sample below). Begin by scanning a QR code and importing the image into Pic Collage on your iPad. Then when the game is played, you’ll “scoot” to classmate’s iPads and type your name in the box that has your preference to the question. Once finished, upload the image with all your classmate’s names to a folder on Dropbox for sharing.

Makerspace Stations (K-3)

A makerspace is an area where you can design, build, and play using materials. The library has been set up as a makerspace this week to give you the opportunity to think like an engineer and try out some new materials that were purchased. There are five stations set up for you to explore. Some of the new materials you’ll use are the ProBot and Kibo robots. Have fun!

Weather Report

Use the Tellagami app on the iPads to report about the weather topic you researched. Your script should be written and practiced in advance and limited to 6-8 sentences. Currently, Tellagami only allows recordings of up to 30 seconds in length. First, locate a photograph of weather topic on Britannica ImageQuest and save it to the camera roll. Then, open the app and create your avatar. Next, upload the photo you chose as the background. Record your script in a quiet space and upload to Dropbox when finished.
