Learning about conductivity in science class was utilized in music class at Cherokee Elementary School as Lisa Scrom’s music students learned how to play a composition using Playdough and their Chromebooks.

Working in teams, the students created a melody, using charts and color-coded blocks. Using a Makey Makey invention kit, which allows students to connect everyday objects to computer keys, the Playdough aligned with the notes so that students could play their song. Ms. Scrom said that the goal of the lesson was for classmates to be able to play peers’ music.

During an elementary economics unit in second grade classrooms at Cherokee Street Elementary School, students learned how community helpers are paid. They also researched and completed a report about their choice of a community helper and dressed in costume as doctors, policemen, judges, firemen and more.

On a SmartBoard, teachers posed questions about various jobs and students were asked to guess the corresponding community helper. The students then shared their reports and discussed facts about their subjects prior to taking a group photo to commemorate the end of the unit.
