aussie foods Makey-makey project

i did the Makey-makey Australian foods project so when you hold the earth and touch the food it tells you a fact/facts about that particular food.

this project is about the culture of our Australian snacks the aim of this project is to teach kids and people from other countries about our foods we have hear i think it is important for people to know what foods we have hear in australia befor they come here. I think I could use this again when a visitor is over from another country so they can learn some information. we made it by getting cardboard  and pins and connected the Makey-makey and know it works really well.

This is the micro bit home page as you can see the kids on the front made watches with them. Hear is a video of my magic 8 ball project. When you shake the micro bit it says “ask a question then comes up with an 8. Then you can ask a question then it come up with an answer. The 2nd thing I made rock paper sizers.
