Grade 5 students explore coding and making using our BeeBots.  Students used their Chromebooks to write a retelling of a classic fairytale.  They created scenery and costumes for their BeeBots.  The students then programmed their Beebots to retell their assigned fairy tale.

Grade 5 students read a fiction article in StoryWorks about a poisonous duck. In this article the duck was not real but have very realistic characteristics.  The students were given the task of creating a fiction animal that could be real.  They worked together to research animals (habitat, food, characteristics, etc) using their Chromebooks. Using their research, the students created a realistic but fictional animal.
