In October Ms. Scutella’s 2nd grade class got Merge Cubes they could use in their classroom! Merge cubes along with Ipad’s can be used to bring virtual reality and augmented reality to life! For the past couple of weeks while the students have been focusing on nonfiction in reading and writing, they have had the chance to explore new concepts with the merge cubes.
Merge cubes along with different apps on the ipads allow the students to explore different content areas such as science, social studies, art, and reading. Students have been able to use the Merge cubes to explore the formation of different animal life cycles. They have been able to use our weather unit in science to explore the weather cycle. For wrapping up our nonfiction unit, students got to explore with the merge cubes to learn and find new facts about a specific topic. They used the merge cubes to do research on life cycles, specific animals, the human body and weather. The students love using merge cubes and have so much fun playing and learning with them.
