After learning about Makey Makeys at a STEAM Leadership Academy, one of our 5th grade teachers, Ms. Wood, showed her students how to use these tools. They had just learned about circuits in their science unit, and now they were able to make the connection using this technology. After showing them how to connect the alligator clips to different objects, students experimented with the kit and the apps on the Makey Makey website. Some of the apps they used were a piano keyboard that would play certain notes when an object was tapped on or touched. Students in her class as well as Mrs. Elmendorf’s were able to apply what they learned about circuits and were engaged the entire time.
