Clay and Chromebooks - a Classic

In the past, I have used this activity before. Each time the students amaze me and are so engaged. I setup party bag sized pots of Playdoh. One sits on top of each chromebook. Students are excited to login to chromebooks for the first time. And show double the excitement as they get to create with clay. This was work with a second grade class in #OurSTEAMCafe. Students are motivated to write as they are describing their own creations. It seems a wonderful introduction to working with chromebooks. This year's students were just as creative and engaged. I passed one student on the stairs later in the week and he asked, "Mrs. Shields, when can we come to The STEAMCafe again?" I'll take that as proof of happy students.
