ACSE Region III- Patterns with Input/Output Tables
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Students will determine what type of data is needed to answer a question and will use Google Sheets to find patterns. These data skills are needed in many career and academic fields. In addition, students will use input output tables in their daily lives through the use of vending machines, banking, and taking trips to new places. This Performance Task allows them to practice these skills through real-world scenerios.

ACSE Region III - Plant and Animal Life Cycle Stop Motion Video
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Students will create an artifact using computing systems to model the attributes and behaviors associated with a concept (e.g., day and night, animal life cycles, plant life cycles). Students are scientists (botanists, zoologists), who just found a new plant/animal in their chosen ecosystem. Their job is to introduce their new plant/animal to the scientific world! They will create a stop motion video to show their new plant/animal's life cycle.

ACSE Region III - Solar System Model Performance Task
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Your task as an astronomer is to model the solar system using technology.  You and your crew are just one group that have been asked by NASA to chart the solar system in order to create a simulation model for future astronauts. After you have accomplished this, you will present your model to the Director of NASA. They have given you several requirements for the simulation. Your simulation should include a map of the solar system that shows the appropriate distance, location, size and relation to the sun amongst the eight planets. You and your team can use a variety of options to complete your simulation. These include Google Suite tools (such as Google Slides, Google Docs, Jamboard, or any equivalent tool such as Microsoft Office), Coding resources (Scratch.edu, tynker.edu) or 3D printing software (Tinkercad) to present. Your map should also include a short descriptive paragraph for each planet explaining its distance, location, size, and at least 3 facts about the planet. If creating a video, you will still want to include descriptions for the planets as well as the three facts.  Presentation to “NASA Directors” must answer the question: how does this simulation/model help future scientists?

Rating

This is an activity that can be used to introduce students to how the ASCII code is used in representing letters in coding.  Students will be given a table of the ASCII code that will be used to decode words and phases.  Then students will create a message in ASCII code and exchange with a fellow student to decyper the code.  An extension of this lesson can be to intoduce students to binary code that represent each digit int he ASCII code.
