Introduction: Responsibility Chart
Help young children make being responsible for themselves fun. This is an easily created project from very few supplies like cardboard, clipart Makey Makey, and Scratch code (that you are able to remix). The Scratch code will add the fun interaction that will encourage young ones to be responsible.
* Aluminium Foil * Makey Makey Kit * Computer (to run Scratch) with USB socket
Step 1: Create Your List of Responsible Activities
Determine which Responsible Activities you wish to have on your board.
Type them on your computer. Print
Type clipart to match your activities (making sure that you resize them to fit). Print on card stock.
Type your Title. Print on card stock
Step 2: Cut Cardboard
Determine what size cardboard you will need. This will be determined by how you plan to lay your project out.
I wanted to have one for Morning and Afternoon so I decided to place both sheets of paper down and left myself extra space for the clips and clipart.
Carefully cut the cardboard out to size.
Step 3: Cut Clipart & Title Out
Cut your Clipart and
Title pieces out carefully.
Carefully tape or glue Title and Responsibility List down on the cardboard.
Step 4: Cut Strips
Cut strips of cardstock and cover them with foil carefully making sure that you leave a space where the foil does not touch.
Fold covered strips in half with foil sides facing together.
Tape or glue Clipart emojis to the top side of the folded cardstock (this will cover side where foil is not touching).
Step 5: Attach the Makey Makey
Attach the Makey Makeyalligator clips to the foil side of the cardstock to cardboard.
Bed Made - Up
Breakfast - Down
Teeth Brushed - Right
Lunch/Backpack - Left
Positive Attitude - Space
Earth - Foil
Step 6: Scratch
Using Scratch (https://scratch.mit.ed/) code a program to add the Responsibility List as each trait is touched. Or you can use the one I did at https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/410106488/ and feel free to remix it if you want to save it to you own account. Connect the Makey Makey's USB cable to the socket.
Step 7: Responsibility Task Completed
When you complete a Responsibility task, with your finger on the earth button, touch the Responsibility Task completed and listen to your reward. Goal is to complete all Responsibility Tasks everyday!
Step 8: Responsibility in Action
