Hungry Hungry Alligator

Today we are building and programing our hungry alligator Lego Creation. We are working with the Mac Books to program our alligators. This is the first time that I have used Legos.  Personally, I learned how to build the alligator.  My team volunteered to rebuild a second time because we liked it so much.  We also learned new vocabulary words, such as what a pulley is and what it does.

     Today, we went to the idea lab. We started to learn how to build an alligator out of Lego's and it opens and closes its mouth. We got to choose one partner to do this with. We didn't get to build it yet but we went through the steps of how to make it. We went on the laptops to see them. We also watched a video (or a couple) starring the amazing alligator! After we were done, we got to write on the walls with expo markers about what we are excited for about this project.

Digital Citizenship and Tagxedo

Today 5D is doing a tagxedo on digital citizenship. We are thinking about words and phrases that represent good digital citizenship. Some of these words are: gender, age, name, information, phone number, and password. These are things we know to protect online.
