- Create science/math questions to exchange with another class in the areas being studied.
- Create a jeopardy game to be played at the videoconference using CPS! Use TAKS questions if you’d like!
- Do a science experiment. Share your experiment and results with another class. Take video pictures, either still, moving, or morphed!
- Do a science lesson on a topic being studied. Share questions and answers with another class. Have an “expert” come to one of the schools to be interviewed during the videoconference!
- Have students write questions to ask younger students. Send a student-created worksheet, project, etc. to the teacher of the younger students ahead of time. Let those students do the activity as a follow-up!
- Write and share word problems. Make it a contest who can answer the most correctly in a class.
- Measure perimeters of the main areas of the school: buildings, playground, sidewalks, etc. Write descriptions using geometric terms of how to put the various shapes together. Send measurements and descriptions to your partner school and have them use these to draw a diagram of the school. Share drawings on the day of conference and compare with actual mapped pictures or photos of the real school areas.
- Find geometric shapes inside and outside of the school. Take photos of these. Send photos to the partner class and have students identify and classify the shapes!
