Title: Sort, Count, and Compare Fuzz Bugs
Description:

In this activity, students will use "Fuzz Bugs - Counting, Sorting, & Comparing" from ABCya that provides a fun and educational interactive game that gives students the opportunity to sort, count, and compare the fuzz bugs. The interactive helps students learn to sort objects by colors, count the objects, then compare the different fuzz bugs.

After students interact with "Fuzz Bugs - Counting, Sorting, & Comparing" from ABCya, students will then collect and organize data about the number and attributes of the "Fuzz Bugs" collected in a Google Sheets template. The Google Sheets template will allow students to tally the number of "Fuzz Bugs" and the cells will turn the color to create a chart of the data collected. 

This activity was created as a result of the DLCS Resource Development Summit.

Title: Graphing Measurement: Analyzing Attributes of Objects’ Heights and Weights
Description:

In this learning activity, students will collaboratively create a Google Form to collect data about the measurements of random objects found within the classroom. The goal of the learning activity is to (1) introduce students to using informal language (short, tall, heavy, light, etc.) to describe an object's height and weight, (2) how to collect data, (3) how to analyze data to find trends, patterns, and other important information about the objects. The teacher will lead the students in the process of creating a Google Form to collect data and then use the data in a spreadsheet to create charts to find trends and patterns about the objects analyzed within the classroom. This learning activity would be a great opportunity for students to practice the informal vocabulary used to describe attributes of the measurement of objects.

This activity was created as a result of the DLCS Resource Development Summit.

Title: Proud to be an American
Description:

Popplet is a tool for creating digital graphic organizers. Research tells us that students can only process about 5-9 bits of information at a time.  Graphic organizers help our students chunk large amounts of information into more manageable pieces for processing.  

In this learning asset, Popplet will be used in the closing activity to help students organize symbols of our nation.
