Social studies teachers can use this lesson for understanding historical events and science teachers could ask students to act out scientific ideas and concepts.

## Distance Rate and Time for Math/Science/Physics

Appropriate for grade levels 8th to HS

How does acceleration change from a downward drop, to a flat surface, to an uphill ramp? With Makey Makey and Scratch you can measure the change in rate over your desired distance and catch the correct time as your toy car drives over simple DIY switches.

## Game Controller Challenge

Appropriate for Grade Levels 5th to HS

Wanna get your whole school involved in coding and game creation? Maybe even challenge another school and host a maker faire? Connect with others by starting a #makeymakeychallenge and start building your maker community.

## Interactive Room Challenge

Appropriate for grade levels ES to HS

Based on the Musical Room by TedXYouth@Austin, Hackidemia, and HS students. This lesson will guide you with step by step instructions for making your classroom or library into an interactive space designed by your students!

## Interactive Word Problem Posters

Appropriate for grade levels 4th to HS

Kids always struggle with word problems. Why not have them create their own word problems as an interactive poster? With Makey Makey you can help your kinesthetic learners write, answer, and share their own word problems in Scratch.

## ELA Logic Puzzles Lesson Plan

With just a little programming instruction, your students will be able to incorporate real life objects with rhyming riddles to construct a logic puzzle in Scratch.

## Musical Water Lesson Plan

Don't know coding? Want to dip your feet in the Makey Makey pool with minimal start up or fuss? Then this is the lesson for you! Let students explore soundscapes with real objects in this musical water lesson that utilizes a key mapping software called Soundplant.

## Simple Circuits Challenge

Appropriate for grade levels 4th to 8th

Simple Circuit: To complete a simple circuit, you must create a loop for the electrons to flow. So you need to get power from your power source to the LED and back to the power source. If you build a successful current, your light will shine! In this lab, you will create your own simple circuits with Makey Makey and once you've mastered that, you'll move on to parallel circuits. Lastly, you'll create your own DIY switch with Makey Makey!

## Math/Science Classify and Sort Lesson Plan

Appropriate for grade levels 4th to 9th

Inspired by Makey Makey Operation game and cardboard sorting machine workshop by Jeff Branson of Sparkfun, you'll finally have a reason to make an Operation game, ahem, I mean sorting game with Makey Makey!
