These resources are driven by the Next Generation Science Standards. In particular these activities allow students to practice various Science & Engineering Practices, such as “Constructing explanations (for science) and designing solutions (for engineering).” Considering these resources are available for a K-5 audience, we’ve only included the standards for grades 3-5. These activities are great for at-home learning and engaging students with their surroundings.
Students will receive business cards listing an address, profession and phone number. Based on the cards, students will practice asking each other questions to determine each other's information.

The activity is completely online
Through a scavenger hunt, students are introduced to the world of nanotechnology. In the form of a competition, groups race to locate symbols that correlate to an answer to a general nanotechnology question. Each team receives paper slips with questions; the remaining questions are hidden behind QR codes. Groups need to answer eight total questions in the correct order. Because this is an intro to nanotechnology and its associated engineering, students need to use problem-solving skills in order to identify the correct answers. After the initial scavenger hunt, a brief class discussion explores advances in nanotechnology. Next, students work in teams to research different areas of nanotechnology as they create their own scavenger hunt games.
This lab will introduce ASL students to having conversations with others. Students will learn how to properly ask and answer questions, as well as how to feel more comfortable in a conversational atmosphere. Students will also learn how to describe each other's responses.
These one-pagers provide background information, instructions, and virtual options for activities included in Washington Green Schools' STEM Seminars. These activities are appropriate for a variety of grade levels. Considering these resources are available for a wide audience, we’ve only included the standards for High School. These resources and activities are driven by the Next Generation Science Standards. In particular these activities allow students to practice various Science & Engineering Practices, such as "Analyzing and interpreting data." Teachers are encouraged to adjust these activites to meet the needs of their classroom.
Engage students with more enjoyable vocabulary and introduction to a new chapter by having them complete a scavenger hunt. This tool is specifically designed for Algebra 1, chapter 1.
In this activity students will use an interactive Google Slideshow to choose different places around China to explore a mini trip to that place. Students will choose a location, and in that location they will choose an activity and food based on limited clues, allowing each choice to be a surprise and expose students to different experiences in China they might not have known about previously.
The wraparound learning experience is demonstrated by Sandi Silbernagel as she teaches her students about Cajun Tall Tales. Instructional expert Jim Knight discusses strategies and activities that can affect learning outcomes.
