One of my favorite things has started at both of our elementary schools- Makers Club! Last year I ran the Monday Morning Makers and I had an awesome time with kids who came to explore, create, and engage in making. This year we've nearly tripled the number of kids participating in sessions that are 90 minutes long! This has opened the door to awesome projects being built and worked on. Yesterday I was reminded about how kids who are free to create and explore engage really intently. Students were tasked with creating a sort of proposal, sharing it with their families, finding all necessary materials on their own and bringing them into school.
Some of the projects the students worked on were:
I'm always inspired about how focused and hardworking kids are. I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings!
