Hey Everyone! We're half way through the week and the MRASP teachers are staying busy creating new activities and zoom meetups! We have some fun activities today including a marble race, some collage, another work out period, and a new tasty snack!


Marble Run

Kept Rolling By Aurora


Grade Level: K-5


Individual or multiple people: Individual


Theme: Engineering


Materials:

  • Cardboard tubes

  • Painters tape

  • Marble

Location: Any open wall space (or a large piece of cardboard/wood that you can prop up against a wall)


Links and resources: https://tinkerlab.com/toilet-paper-roll-marble-run/


Further instructions or accommodations:

  1. Decorate your cardboard tubes using markers, paint, washi tape, or any other materials you want (optional).

  2. Cut most or all of your cardboard tubes in half the long way. You can leave some full to have a variety of half-tubes and full-tubes for your marbles.

  3. Using painters tape, start taping your tubes and half-tubes up onto your work surface (either a wall or a large piece of cardboard/wood propped up against the wall). Make sure you test your marble run as you go - it's easier to make adjustments when you catch problems earlier!


Start off with cardboard tubes and painter's tape to build your marble run, but consider what other things you can add in to make your marble run more interesting or challenging. This could include egg cartons, rolled newspapers, funnels, popsicle sticks, or whatever else you can think of! With enough time and creativity, your marble run could turn into a full-blown Rube Goldberg machine!



Magazine Acronyms

Cut Up By Carra


Grade Level: K-5


Individual or multiple people: Either

Theme: Self Expression, Art, Creativity.


Materials: Old magazines or newspapers, scissors, glue/tape, paper


Location: table or floor


Further instructions or accommodations:

  1. You will search through old magazines or newspapers to find all the letters of your NAME. Pick either your first or last name to start.

  2. Once you have found all the letters of the name, Glue or tape then vertically going down directly below each other on a piece of paper.

  3. Your next task is to find WORDS that describe yourself starting with the letters from your name in the magazines.


Example: Magical Amazing Silly Out of this world, FUN Nice


  1. If you can not find a word like “magical” you can find all the letters to create the word magical from the magazine.

(*PARENTS: With younger kids, brainstorm words together that describe them and write the words out on a separate piece of paper. This will give them more independence in doing this activity. Prompt the kids to cross off the letter once they have found it and cut it out from a magazine)

  1. If you had fun with his activity you can do it to your middle or last name!


Adaptation: You could make an acronym for a family member or friend and pick words that you would describe them as!
