  1. Hi Jacquie,
    I enjoyed reading your course profile. It will be interesting to see how our younger learners adapt to using the google classroom. Attendance is a concern of mine as well. I hope providing the materials online will be helpful and engage some of our students who struggle to attend school.


  2. Jacquie,

    Awesome outline of your course! This is one of my favourite units to teach, so I can’t wait to see what your modules look like! In my course outline, I mentioned the same in regard to attendance. This has been the first week back since January that I haven’t been missing 8-10 kids per day. Having access to Google Classroom has been a lifesaver!

    Ed Puzzle is a fantastic assessment tool! I used it for the first time last week and again this week… Very user friendly and will sync to your Google Classroom!

    I’m sure you have some amazing ideas brewing, but this is an awesome video of a Rube Goldberg machine… Gets the kids pretty hyped about creating!

    • Thanks Leigh! It’s my favourite science unit to teach as well. I have yet to have a full class since the break! Yesterday I had 22 of my 26 kiddos! Google classroom has been my savior for kids that have been missing!


  3. I see a new online tool in your post I don’t know of – “Edpuzzle” – What is this? How do you use it in your classroom currently or plan on using in your prototype?


    • It’s an awesome tool, you can post videos for your kiddos to watch, and through the video it will pause and ask questions specific to the video. Kids can submit it and you see their answers and it gives you a sense on whether or not they understand the topic or not. Plan to use this as a check in to see if they are understanding the content
