Middle School Students Create Non-Linear Interactive Slideshows in Google Slides

Middle School students have been busy learning how to create non-linear interactive slideshows using Google Slides. 

Students were required to create a slideshow on the planets of the solar system in a way that allowed the user to hop back and forth between slides that provided information about each planet. The students were required to insert muted, auto-playing videos related to each planet as well as use transparent shapes to link to other slides within the slideshow, creating the illusion of a linked hotspot on the image; all using the skills taught during distance learning in computer science class. 

Students were presented with a starter image of the solar system but were rewarded with bonus points for originality, visual presentation and technical proficiency.

The students work can be found below:

Preschool Backyard Scavenger Hunt

A science Experiment, The Tiny Seed, Scavenger Hunt and More

Efram Hersh enjoyed the science experiment he did online with Miss Kathleen, using baking soda and vinegar! Preschoolers also listened to parts of “The Tiny Seed” by Eric Carle, and discussed how the wind helps the tiny seed. The students completed a worksheet on what things help the tiny seed and what things hurt the tiny seed, and had lots of fun singing songs about planting time and acting it out. Their favorite part of the lesson was the backyard scavenger hunt, searching for butterflies, squirrels, sticks, mud, leaves, ants, flowers, rocks, and other outdoor items!
