WELCOME TO THE QUEST DISTANCE LEARNING CLASSROOM
There are a few options for you to you select from.
- Option 1: A non-technology option that is hands on and may require you to plan with a sketch and to build a final product with materials in your home.
- Option 2: A technology option that will require students to work on the computer to complete a task.
- Option 3: A LEGO challenge which has its own page under my Distance Learning tab. This is asks students to read LEGO adventure story and complete a build.
Feel free to choose the option that works best for you. If it is just not possible to engineer today, that is fine too! Do what is best for your family.
If any of my engineers would like to share their projects, ideas, and/or creations, please feel free to use the email firstname.lastname@example.org to send their celebrations to me!
I have also set up a FlipGrid account for the QUEST classroom. Use this grid to post your plans, ideas, creations, and/or coding games. Directions are below.

Option 1: Non-tech
Overview: Plan, design build, and improve a game.
Estimated Time: 25 minutes
Explanation: You will use materials that you have at home, examples could include white paper, tape, scissors, recycled materials like cereal boxes, stickers, etc. to build a game of your choice.

- Plan: Think about the following questions:
- What games do I like that I can model my game after?
- How many players should be in my game?
- What kind of playing pieces do I want?
- How will someone win in my game?
- What will the payers earn along the way, points, money?

- Share: Play your final game to someone in your house
Method of Communication : Share with someone at home, or take a picture and share it with your QUEST teacher through email or Teams.
Option 2: Tech
Overview: To complete coding challenges using blockly code.
Estimated Time: 25 minutes
Explanation: You will use your critically thinking and problem-solving skills to creatively solve coding challenges on code.org.
Quick things to know: You will need a device to access the internet.
- Using an internet browser on your electronic device, go to code.org
- Optional: You can also access code.org through your Clever account.
- From that main page, scroll down the page until you see the Hour of Code option. (it has an image of Minecraft characters above it)
- Click on the words Hour of Code.
