This week, we took a short break from our current Agents for Change project (we are researching improvements to our school playground) and worked on some coding activities. We worked with Sphero Robots (they were a big hit) and began some 5th grade courses in Code.org. Students also used iPads to program the Ozobots. It was a FUN day in LEAP!
As agents for Change, we started with a community project. 5th grade students teamed up with the Friends of the Rappahanock to learn about the importance of keeping our local waterways clean, and how to clean up our shoreline. Students collected trash from the beaches, researched the effects of pollution, and presented their digital and physical projects at the Urbanna Oyster Festival Education Day this fall.
