A Makerspace is a creative space where students can gather to explore, tinker, discover and create. One of the main benefits of having our Makerspace is the group collaboration and problem-solving that takes place, a valuable skill our students need for future success.
A group of grade 4 students in our English Language Arts- Makerspace sessions have been collaborating together to create an interactive word families game for our younger students at SSA. Each week the group comes together to plan, design, tinker, and problem solve as a team.
The students are learning the technical tools within the Makerspace and the importance of working together as a team. Stay tuned to see the final game design in the next few weeks!
