First Grade Makerspaces

My first graders have been introduced to Makerspace centers for the remainder of the year.  Here are some pics from the types of projects they are creating.  It is amazing what type of projects you will get when give them the materials and allow them the freedom to play or I mean build.  Whatever you call it it is so exciting to watch them use their creativity to create wondeful "stuff".  SHHH...don't tell them because they don't even know they are learning.

So we had a new 3D Dinosaur puzzle this year.  It was not an easy task to master but each day a few first graders would select it for their Makerspace Center, they would leave whatever they completed together, and then the dinosaur would sit and wait on the next group to work on it.  Thursday, Cinco de Mayo day, marks the day that it is complete.  Take a look.  The students were so proud!
