HPE 3rd Graders Connect with Roald Dahl in the MakerSpace

Recently, HPE 3rd graders made a connection between Literacy, Maker Space, and Art.  Students read the book The Witches by Roald Dahl and wrote their own recipe as modeled in the book. In Art, students created a sculpture using maker space materials creating a secret ingredient discovering their own story.  Notice evidence of true inspiration as the students were free to explore their own subject and choose their own materials.  The process was playful, joyful, and full of learning as they revised and developed their ideas. (A portion of the Maker Studio supplies has been generously funded by ACE and the HPE PTO.)
