Introduce Coding using a MaKey MaKey and Scratch

Introduce Coding using a MaKey MaKey and Scratch | Spark Teaching Ideas with these Resources | Scoop.it

"A MaKey MaKey is a very simple to use piece of kit which can be used to add a little bit more fun to a class coding project.

 

The MaKey Makey is a bare bones circuit board that connects to your computer via USB. There are7 terminals for attaching electrical wires to it. These are arranged like an old games controller – with up/down/left/right arrows and also spacebar and left click. A strip along the bottom allows for another wire to connect it to Earth."

MrsDi's insight:

Wonderville's games, comics, and videos can be used by elementary and middle school students on their own. The hands-on activities could be used by teachers as the basis for an elementary school science lesson plan. The hands-on activities include experiments in which students need to record observations.
