    2nd & 3rd

    Today we finished most of our 3D pen projects; kolas, panda, Mickey Mouse, giraffe, and wolf.  Some students turned their projects into magnets.  Students who finished early worked on chess, the Shapes Up game, the 24 game, or building something from our classroom supplies box.  Next time we will have our end-of-the-year party and finish our projects.

    Today we started using the 3D printing pens!  Students finished their templates, selected colors, attached protective lamination to their templates, and I showed them how to use the pens.  We made a lot of progress on their creations today.

    2nd

    Today we began our last project of the year; creating something with a 3D printing pen.  I introduced them to 3D printing pens with two short videos and then we discussed possible topics for their project.  They perused some of our classroom books for ideas.  After deciding on a topic, they wrote down questions to answer with their research.  Then they began reading the books to gather information on their topics.

    First, we read a chapter in the book A Survival Guide for Gifted Students and discussed it.  Then I introduced our last project for the year; researching a topic and then creating a project using a 3D printing pen.  I introduced them to 3D printing pens with two short videos and then we discussed possible topics for their project.  They perused some of our classroom books for ideas.
