Celebrate 100’s day with a bit of technology. These free online tools allow students extra enrichment when celebrating the 100th day of school.
As students are reviewing odd and even numbers, students first sketch out a bug that has odd or even features. Students then use Tinkercad to turn their sketch into a 3D design to be printed.
The class won a good behavior contest and the reward is a bowling party. The day of the party it is raining and the students are unable to visit the bowling alley. So the students build their own bowling alley using the WeDo robot kit. Then they have a bowling competition to see who bowls the highest score.
As students study electricity and circuits, they can build their Operation games. Made from a few household materials, a makey-makey kit and the Scratch website, students can create and play their Operation game.
Students will create a fictitious city that has experienced a natural disaster. Once their city is completed, students will create a vehicle to transport supplies to the people who need help.
Students will be given a Makey Makey kit, a Chromebook with the Scratch website and a choice of materials to create a circuit that will allow the students to play an in instrument.
As students study the human body, they can include the different body systems as they build their Operation games. Made from a few household materials, a makey-makey kit and the Scratch website, students can create and play their Operation game.
Each team has a budget of $45 to spend to modify a cup into the ultimate predator. After predators are constructed, students battle to pop each others’ balloons. Whichever predator is able to survive is the apex predator.
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) videos are designed to support states, schools, and teachers in the implementation of selected math standards. Each video is an audiovisual resource that focuses on one or more specific standards through examples and illustrations geared to enhancing understanding. The intent of each content-focused video is to clarify the meaning of the individual standard rather than to be a guide on how to teach each standard, although the examples can be adapted for instructional use.
On-line interactive, video, and practice activities and accompanying hands-on collaborative activity are designed to teach fourth graders an overview of simple figure patterns.
Bee-bot is trying to learn Math. Students will follow Bee-bot solving a math problem. It will solve the problem incorrectly. Students will find where the mistake occurs and correct Bee-bot’s program to help him solve it correctly.
In this problem-based learning module, students will use their knowledge of the ancient Roman Empire and will work to analyze critical theories historians agree contributed to the fall of Rome. Students will then work to compare the problems faced by the Romans with problems citizens of the United States still largely face today. Through this investigation, students should recognize how modern technology, government agencies, laws and resources help to solve societal problems that could have once destroyed an empire. With this new understanding, students should work to present a solution to a major problem that plagued the Roman Empire during the years leading up to its collapse.
Children love LEGOs! And knowing how to code is becoming more and more essential for the next generation of innovators, do-ers and leaders. Put LEGOs and coding together and you have the FIRST LEGO League Explore program, an innovative and engaging project that makes classroom learning popular and fun. We will demonstrate how to build and code with the LEGO WeDo 2.0 kit. In addition, we will learn more about how this kit is used in the FLL Explore program while walking-through the curriculum and the engineering notebook used by students in grades K-4. We will also share best practices for safe use of shared materials.
After brainstorming a list of essential businesses and/or points of interest, each student will create a building from recycled cardboard. They will then decide a location to house the building in the city. There will also be waterways included. Then in teams of 2-3 the students will use recycled materials to build a bridge to carry the ozobot through the city giving tours of important locations. The ozobot will need to be able to cross the bridge which will allow students to work through issues with force and motion.
This task requires students to reason through different contexts of story problem to determine whether or not 3 divided by 1/2 would be a correct solution equation. The situations in these story problems allow for the discussion of the common misconception about when 3 divided by 2 or 3 divided by 1/2 is an appropriate solution path.
