I unpacked some new laptops for teachers recently and with my 'Mrs Maker' hat on thought about what we could do with the packaging. I ended up with 2 'frames' and even recycled the black plastic inner. Here's what we did with one half of the box which had a black foam attached liner...the optical illusion cubes were hung with fishing line giving it the illusion that they were suspended in mid air. Some learners chose to stick to the black and white theme while others chose colour - both looked stunning against the black frame.
Tip: Once the cube net template (which I just googled and found a free download and printed out on A3 paper) was designed, learners glued it on to cardboard to strengthen and ensure the shape was structural well defined.
This is was one challenge station of 5 on offer for Year 5's today.
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
