STEP 1 : Classroom Signal Device
Students will create a signaling device to indicate if a student has left or returned from the classroom area for water or restroom break. This device is switched on/off by the student leaving or returning to the classroom. The battery is attached to the board with a zip tie because the device will be picked up to switch on/off. The white plastic cup makes the light easier for the other students in the classroom to see. If the light is on, they know to wait to request a water or bathroom break until the other student returns.
