On Tuesday, February 12th, the grade 5 students of Room 4 and Room 1 will be making Robocritters!  These are battery operated robots that can be designed to match the student's interest based on the found materials they use to decorate them.  Today, Mr. Herb Reynolds came to visit and talk about what we may need to make our robots extra special.  They include:

  • cardboard or Styrofoam
  • googly eyes
  • string or cloth
  • pipe cleaners
  • plastic jars
  • fancy paper
  • really light metal

You can find these materials at home, or you may decide to head to the neighbourhood dollar store to find some supplies.

Also, don't forget to bring a small box to carry your supplies in.  At the end of the day, you can use this box to carry your Robocritter home.

Be sure to bring in all the supplies by Monday, February 11th so you have them ready for Tuesday morning.  As well, take the time to discuss some possible ideas of what you might like to create. 

We are looking forward to a fun and educational day!
