Some months, when the weather is crazy and the kids are itching for winter break and you are just so burned out and exhausted that you can’t think of anything new, Maker Monday turns into a mini maker fair. Which is, of course, just stations of lots of different maker activities that we’ve done before and a whole bunch of display books. It is easy to set up, requires minimal prep, and some of the kids already know what to do.
For this Homeschool Hub we focused on game design, both digital and physical. I had a small group this month, and a large number of older teens (!!) and it was fun to see how some of the younger kids gravitated towards app creation and the older ones got out the paper and pencils.
What?-ology is an afterschool program that I have offered as a chance to do a random mash-up of things so I can pick anything I want! We got a 3 month Bitsbox subscription over the summer, so I decided that my first What?-ology of the year would be a great time to do some coding!
