Thanksgiving Day isn’t complete without the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade held each year in New York City. The fourth grade students in Jennifer Rosario’s class at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School were challenged to replicate the parade floats and its route through the city.

Working in small groups, students let their creativity shine as they designed balloons to replicate those that one would see along the parade route. The next step was designing the parade route around Manhattan and using technology to move them. Coding their Ozobots, the floats lined up in formation and paraded around Santa Claus in the middle.
