Tamarac Turns Back Time With Technology

Tamarac Turns Back Time With Technology photo

A study of a prominent point in history at Tamarac Elementary School led fourth grade students on a unique educational journey last school year that coupled elements of technology and history.

As part of the curriculum unit on the American Revolution, Tamarac fourth graders began their expansive history project by researching important figures such as Benjamin Franklin, Molly Pitcher, Paul Revere, Deborah Sampson and George Washington. To accompany their research, the creative students constructed bottle figures that replicated the figures they selected for their project. With help from technology integration specialist Claudia Camassa, students then utilized Scratch coding software and Makey Makey kits to animate their bottle characters with recordings of their voice to tell the story of their involvement in the American Revolution. 

At the culminating event for the project, students displayed their unique projects and bottle figures for an audience of family and friends to observe and experience the interactive presentation.
