We started with ten Makey Makey Classic kits. You can buy your own by clicking HERE. We also had ten Chromebooks, so we decided to have our students break up into groups of 2 or 3 depending on class size.
Students were first shown the Makey Makey video below to be introduced to what Makey Makey is and how it works.
Once the students translated their notes from the songs to the notes on the piano, they practiced reading the music and playing the song. We were so proud of their hard work! Some of the students even got really creative with how they grounded their circuit. Some made bracelets to wear, while others held the ground wire and touched the student who was playing, so the student playing could use both hands.
