MightyGirls, MakerEd and Literacy: Too Tall Houses

Too Tall Houses by Gianna Marino from Anna Crosland on Vimeo.

Students combined  a fun story and a Maker project designed to encourage Social Emotional Learning and Grade 5 / 6 classes began to make connections with their #MightyGirl.

Students created by working as a group, including everyone’s ideas, sharing and completing the task in a designated amount of time. The challenge was to design a ‘Too Tall House’. Check out all of these focused makers.

Here’s a list of the diverse group of MightyGirls we will be focusing on. Students labelled their doll with their name and division to help keep track of the project.

After our research we will be making clothes for our dolls. Any donations of fabric scraps, sewing needles or thread from the community would be greatly appreciated. Many Thanks.
