英語で電気工作教室 Week 6

This was the final week of our English and Electronics Course (英語で電気工作教室). So it was time to put everything together and review what we have learned so far!

It was also the time to put the A into our STEAM course. As you my know STEAM in an education sense is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. So hving concentrated on the STEM part in the previous five classes, today we decorated our robots. Marker pens, scissors, hot glues, crayons were made available and the children were free to give their robot a personality.

This student decided to turn his robot into a cat. Meow!

We then connected everything the robot, arduino and controller together using jumper wires. After quickly testing that everything was working as expected we had a lot of fun animating our robots. Check out the video of the above cat robot....

And then the course was finished. We boxed the robots, Arduinos and various components for the children to take home and show their parents.

In the Evening

Last Saturday, in our Kinder class, we started the final book in the Potato Pals level 1 series. Here's a video of the song so you can practice at home.

Just need to find six spare dogs so we can do the 'walk the dog' action....

Skidamarink a dink a dink

   Valentine's Day is almost here, so today in our Kinder class we did the Skidamarink Song. Over the years this song has proved very popular and today was no exception! If you want to practise at home here is a video from the folks at Super Simple with Tobee and friends.

  Before you ask, even after twelve years of using this song in my classes, I still have no idea what a 'skidamarink' is!!
