This resource provides students with a audiogram simulator students can use to guage levels of auditory perception of the right and left ear on an audiogram leading students to determine levels of hearing loss from hearing with in normal limits, mild, moderate, severe, to profound.
Students explore some of the qualities of our sense of hearing and its usefulness to us. They can also begin to consider what the consequences could be of hearing impairment.
In this activity, students will select a person, place, or object that is meaningful to them and create a thirty-second story that explains the importance of this place or object. This is a great activity for the first week or two of school to help students learn to get to know each other and work on their presentation skills. As we well know, public speaking among many people’s greatest fears, so in this assignment, students will create video presentations that allow for editing and revision which will hopefully lower the stakes of the presentation.
In this activity, students are given a series of two-sided equations and are asked to determine if each two-sided equation has infinitely many solutions, one solution, or no solutions.
This activity requires students to select the melody they hear. Each melody is 1 measure and there are 10 questions with audio. This resource is a Google Form. It is designed as a mini activity to be used within a larger lesson plan. It can also be used in a virtual/distance learning situation.
Chico has a friend who is stuck in a laundry shoot and uses a new tool to help his friend get free. Create a new tool using materials from a list provided and work within a budget constraint.
Having studied the archetypes of heros, students will be asked to complete a collaborative essay of a hero's journey utilizing narrative writing skills, the stages of the hero's journey, and elements, such as supernatural beings or creatures, found in mythology.

This activity requires students to select the rhythm they hear. Each rhythm is 1 measure and there are 10 questions with audio. This resource is a Google Form. It is designed as a mini activity to be used within a larger lesson plan. It can also be used in a virtual/distance learning situation.
In this lesson students will learn about electromagnetic energy through a female engineer who invented frequency hopping that is used by so many devices we use daily. Students will explore and solve a real world problem by designing a device to block or build a stronger Wi-Fi signals. Each team will record their work with Flip.
Driving Questions / Scenario (what are we trying to solve or improve?)
What is the electromagnetic spectrum?
Which part of the electromagnetic spectrum does Wi-Fi use?
What materials do you think will block a Wi-Fi signal? What materials do you think will let a Wi-Fi signal pass through?
