Did you know that you can write your name in binary using the ASCII code that computers read?
Computers assign a string of 0s and 1s to different letters, symbols, and instructions, and this is called binary code. The colored red bead could represent "1" while the black bead could represent "2." A blue bead can be used as spaces between the letters of your name.
The craft instructions are at:
Did you know that the raised and lowered dots of braille are another form of binary code? So is Morse Code! You could easily adapt activity to teach kids Morse Code (assign one color for dashes and another for dots).
Let your kids create their own Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, iPad, and blog page. They can color and write. This is a great way to introduce themselves to their new teacher.

Did you know that you can create art with magnets and paint? Experiment with magnets. What objects are attracted to magnets? What objects do not work with magnets? Make some fun patterns and art.
Enjoy this fun activity!
Students can build a pendulum that can create art. This activity can help introduce or reinforce the laws of motion or gravity. Have fun creating wonderful works of art.
