Digital Meets Physical Exploration

You have 30 minutes to explore the activities around the room. There is a series of Math activities, a series of Science activities and a series of mixed examples. Please actually try out the activities as if you were the students. How could the learning opportunity be extended and/or deepened through technology? Share your thoughts with the people around you as you explore.

Make & Do Math Samples

If a station is busy go to another and come back. There are not stations for each letter necessarily (just checking to see if you are awake).
