A Vision Project

About This Project

Brownsville Elementary School’s principal, Jason Crutchfield, asked me to help design and implement what the principal called a “vision project.” This two-week experience focused on a second grade student’s passion for video games and space.

Instead of spending time in the classroom doing whole-class math instruction, the student designed a video game and controller using Scratch and a Makey-Makey. We taught math mini-lessons that addressed the missed content, spent time exploring circuits and electricity, and developed the second grader’s coding repertoire. ┬áThe culminating activity was a presentation and demonstration to classmates, teachers, and administrators.
