First Grade Engineers

As a culminating activity for their light and sound unit, first graders became engineers.  They used what they learned to plan, design and create unique communication devices. Students shared what they learned in their science unit and developed a device that they could use to communicate with their classmates using either light or sound.  They created a code to go along with their device so they could communicate without speaking.  Students enjoyed present their fun and effective communication devices to their classmates.
