The Maker Movement is a great way to engage students in creative exercises that foster critical thinking. The littleBits snap circuits provide a variety of ways students can invent an electric module that embodies what the Maker Movement is all about.
I purchased my littleBits over the summer as a way to explore how the circuits bring learning to a new level. The color coding system and ease of use give students easy access to projects that provide instant gratification. I created this lesson plan for my students as a way to teach them about the Maker Movement and practice using a tool developed from the Maker Movement that allows them to become makers themselves.
