Ms. Abell and Ms. Moore worked with first grade students in Ms. Alden's class today as students explored two of the tools from the new STEAM carts. Students explored two items -- Squigz and Magnatiles -- and worked with partners to complete different tasks according to a given list (determined by the roll of a die). Students created playgrounds, castles, people, and even dragons. They also used their iPads to take photos of their creations. Students can then use these photos for future writing prompts. Ms. Alden's class will continue exploring with the materials this week, and then next week they will move to another first grade classroom. Way to go, creative Cardinals!
First graders explain all the elements of their playground design, completed with Squigz pieces.
