“The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with. It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true." ―Carl Sagan

Dear Makerspace Students,

Today in Makerspace, you will have a guest teacher to help you work through the agenda independently. Here's what I would like you to do today:

  1. Make sure you've accepted your invitation to join our Makerspace class on Google Classroom.

  2. Continue to walk around the room and complete your "Where is it?" scavenger hunt map. (If you don't have a copy of this yet, please get one from your teacher. They are on top of the standing desk at the front of the room.)

  3. Independently, use the Book Creator app on your iPad to create a new book called Makerspace Journal. You will use this journal to keep track of all of your 6th grade work, and you will bring this journal to 7th grade where you will continue to build on foundational engineering and woodworking concepts. Here is a short video that shows you how to create a book in Book Creator.

    • Design a cover page for your Makerspace journal. Make sure it says "Makerspace" and your name somewhere on it. Personalize it and make it your own! Decorate it so that it shows me something about your interests, likes, hobbies, family, etc.


Work hard!

Mr. Clarke
