Back-to-School 

Kick off the school year with these fun worksheets and activities connecting technology to summer activities! 

My Summer Technology (Lower Elementary): Students will describe one technology they used this summer, then illustrate themselves using this technology.

My Summer Technology (Upper Elementary): Students will describe two technologies they used this summer, and the problems these technologies solved. Then, students will imagine their own summer technology to solve a unique problem!

Our Summer Technology (Lower & Upper Elementary): The class will list technologies used by students, allowing for discussion and a math extension.
