    The writing extension on this challenge was a favorite, by far! The students enjoyed building smart device prototypes. They worked collaboratively to come up with some great ideas. One group created a smart watch that will monitor blood sugar levels in a person with diabetes. They knew it was important to stay hydrated with this disease. My 4th graders had a blast with their smart devices!

    I used this lesson to introduce the Dash and Dot robots we have in our MakerDen. We used the tablets as our smart devices, and acted as a Computer Programmer telling our robots what to do using a Path app. Even my kindergartners did great!
