Building Our Websites by Leah

In technology, we are working on our weebly websites. We are creating Weebly websites to promote our inventions that we created. Earlier this week, we started our Minecraft prototypes. We were set up to make our product prototypes out of Minecraft blocks. This helps us visualize our invention. Then, we took snapshots of our prototypes. After that, We started setting up our Weebly websites. We are still in the process of completing the websites. When we finish our websites, we will publish them so the world can see how creative our inventions are and what they will add to the world!

On Our Way to Silicon Valley by Maggie

This week in 5th grade tech we are working hard on business plans to pitch. So far, we have made a plan on how we will get the name of our product out into the real world. Next, we made a spreadsheet in Google Drive that is representative of our business costs. We translated that data into a chart to represent all of it so we can see how the percentages add up! For example, we can see how much it would cost to get furniture and a website to support our business. Our fifth grade class is well on their way to pitching our ideas in Silicon Valley!

Today, we are continuing to pursue our ideas in class. We will take it to the next level when we start to sketch and plan out our new ideas. As kids finish their business plans we will be taking it up a notch by deciding on the budgets for our products... Hope it all goes well!
