Being the only kid left at home this summer didn’t get Chase down!
All the other kids were away at camp, but he was determined to stay busy, and learn some new things so he joined our Northern Dauphin Case Manager at one of our supportive service sites.
The first week, he borrowed a big bag of plastic parts and some marbles. He built several roller coasters, each one taller and faster than the last. He timed his marbles, trying to figure out which ones were the fastest and why.
The second week, he borrowed a stack of “How to draw” books. He drew dragons, and sports cars, Pokemon and baby animals. The third week we decided to explore something new in Technology, the “T” in STEM. Because he was the only student, we had enough time to devote to a computer project, and he chose Making a video.
Chase thought about what the topic of his video would be for about 5 seconds. He chose “baby animals” because they are his favorite. He very carefully typed each animals name into the Google Search engine for kids and selected one image for each type, eighteen different animals in all! He made a new folder on the desktop to temporarily hold his pictures, then started uploading them one by one into our favorite online video making program, Adobe Spark.
He retyped each animals name, checked his spelling and chose the background theme, colors, and music. We think he did a pretty awesome job. What do you think? https://spark.adobe.com/video/z75uAVBqVCkZh
