Today was Brain Game Day in the Makerspace!


We played with Circuit Maze (Lessons on Circuits), Gravity Maze (Lesson on Movement and Energy), Laser Maze (Lesson on Angles and How Lasers work), Rush Hour (Thinking game), Trivia, and Dice Games (for probability). It's always a great time when students can learn and have fun doing it.

Today we began to talk about and explore Google Drive. 

Google Drive is a personal cloud storage service from Google that lets users store and synchronize digital content across computers, laptops and mobile devices, including Android-powered tablet and smartphone devices.

Keep practicing and familiarizing yourself with Google Drive.

Today, 4B worked on their chromebooks by playing and practicing their fine motor skills with Quest for a Comet on NASA Space Place


Comets | The Dr. Binocs Show | Educational Videos For Kids



Quick Comet Facts

  • No two comets are alike. They differ in size, shape, and what they’re made of.

  • Comet tails are a result of solar wind. Energy and particles from the sun push on the comet. This force pushes dust and gas behind the comet. The ion dust and gas have different weights, so they separate, making two specular tails.

  • Once scientists saw a third tail, which was a smaller tail forming just between the dust and gas tail. They discovered it was made of salt.

  • Comet tails have been discovered to be so long that Voyager 2 passed through one that was thousands of miles away!

Welcome to your CCS Makerspace. It’s an absolute pleasure to have met your class, and truly look forward to working with each and every one of you. Please remember these four (4) rules as we embark on this adventurous ride together filled with educational-fun, imagination and inspiration: In this class...

  • We ALL have the right to learn. NO ONE has the right to interrupt or waste OUR time.

  • We ALL have the right to be ourselves. NO ONE has the right to laugh at us or hurt our feelings.

  • We ALL have the right to hear and be heard. NO ONE has the right to keep us from being heard when it is our turn to speak.

  • We ALL have the right to be safe, and to have our belongings be safe. NO ONE has the right to make us feel afraid, or to damage or take our belongings.
