#MAkerspace: On A Cart Rolls Into Literature III
#MAkerspace: On A Cart Rolls Into Literature III

This past Friday, learners in Ms. Littlefield's Literature III class participated in a #MAkerSpace challenge that utilized their knowledge of the play, A Raisin in the Sun, and materials from #MAkerspace: On a Cart.  Mrs. Bellegarde, MA librarian, pulled together a variety of random items - everything from popsicle sticks to empty industrial spools - and asked learners to create a 3D model set from the play using only the description provided in the director's notes.  After making a rough sketch, learners worked in collaborative teams of two. Mrs. Bellegarde brought the materials to the classroom with #MAkerspace: On a Cart, challenging learners to work with limitations in their design and construction. It was an excellent learning experience for all learners as well a memorable way for them to apply their knowledge.
