This week the third grade worked on a Makerspace Challenge: You found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, but now you need to cross a river to escape from the leprechauns.
I was working on making a pillow while I was teaching classmates how to sew too!
In Makerspace I’m making a string lantern. I’m using balloons for the shape of the lantern.
Today I made a DIY Vera Bradley bag. I had to sew both sides of the zipper and all four corners. Surprisingly, it was my first time using a sewing machine!
We were very busy in Makerspace this week.
Our First graders have been working on teamwork, brainstorming ideas, planning and executing a series of engineering challenges.
Today our 4 year olds from Room 2 were construction workers. They used lots of different materials, like Legos, Zoobs, and good old-fashioned Lincoln Logs, to build lots of creative structures.
Welcome to SJM Makerspace blog. We hope to share all of the fun things we are making, doing and learning each week in Makerspace and in our Middle School Genius Hour.
We went to the Cathedral Basilica for a Mass celebrating the feast of St. Louis on the 250th anniversary of our city. Afterwards we enjoyed Ted Drewes ice cream with Bishop Rice at a service fair where we learned about service opportunities in our area
