This is a short and to-the-point video (Students Distance Learning.mp4) from Alex Case in Loudoun County. It can give you ideas for making your own video for your division's students, and even for your teachers!
The goal of this activity is to build critical thinking skills and excitement for Computer Science / Computational Thinking, while laying a foundation of fundamental programming concepts. By scaffolding basic concepts like sequencing and algorithms in an unplugged activity, students who are intimidated by computers can still build a foundation of understanding. In this lesson, students will learn how to develop an algorithm and encode it into a program.By "programming" one another to draw pictures, students experience some of the core concepts of programming in a fun and accessible way. The class will start by having students view a video of a simple program demonstrating how to develop instructions for building a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Students will start with simple shapes, and progress to the coding of a specific drawing that other students will then try to replicate (“running the program”). If there is a desire to have a more of a Math slant on the lesson, the drawing could take place on graph paper. Students would then use the coordinates to complete the drawing.

Design Your Own Experiment : a Health & Biology Interdisciplinary Learning Experience The Heart of Scientific Literacy: understanding scientific investigation & experimental design Purpose:The purpose of this activity is for you to explore the process of scientific investigation through a health lens. You will consider ways in which data is collected to inform your health and well being. You will create and carry out a valid experimental design in the fitness room or small gym. Your experimental design must yield reliable data. You will analyze the data to make a claim and support it with evidence. In short, you will carry out a scientific investigation from start to finish to grow in scientific literacy and make informed decisions about your health.
