Niche Bots

Students in Mrs. Mulvaney’s Science class created creatures using circuits and their knowledge of living systems.  They created new creatures based on a habitat and an animal type card they drew at the beginning of the activity.  The animal had to move, had to have a complete circuit, and had to have adaptations for the food it ate and the habitat it lived in.   Take a look at their creatures in action.

As a culmination to the project, students created Trading Cards (using an iPad app) about their animals.

Bringing Famous Virginians and Documents to Life

Mrs. Mulvaney’s VA Studies class created virtual reality posters to convey key information about Famous Virgnians and Famous Documents.  They used a lot of technology to create these posters.  They used Pic Collage on the iPads to create the actual poster and green screen technology to place themselves in a historical setting.  The entire project is pulled together using an app called Aurasma.  If you download the app, follow the Oak Grove Channel, and scan the posters, they will come to life with the students’ videos.  Here are directions on how to load the app.

And just in case you can’t make it to Oak Grove to scan the posters in person, here are their videos below:
