For students to brainstorm and keep their creation-notes organized.
WHAT IT IS
An organized invention diary made specifically to work with LittleBits. Guiding questions make it easy for students to challenge themselves, brainstorm, and record their thinking process.
FITS ANY LESSON!
Great as an introductory lesson, review, assessment, or a whole class activity! The questions are open ended, so the worksheets really fit any challenge. OR even with no challenge, if a student is just creating something on his/her own, then the invention log is still a great tool to get thoughts on paper and record exactly what created.
GOOD FOR ALL AGES!
Can be used as young as elementary school all the way into college classes! The guiding questions make it easy for any student to understand and challenge themselves – no matter what level he/she is.
(1) Invention Log – Full Sheet Printables [3 pages]
• Fast to print, ready-to-go fully printed pages (not cutting necessary)
(2) Invention Log – Half Sheet Printables [8, half sheets]
• Easy to print, mini packets
(3) Extra Prototype Sheets
• These are in case a student has more than the given amount of prototypes in the packet. No problem! Students shouldn’t be limited! Keep the creative juices flowing and have extra prototype worksheets ready to go upon request!
(4) Directions (even though the printing and use is pretty self explanatory)
• The Invention Log is great for all learners because it is open ended questions. Students (and the teacher) can make the challenges as easy or as difficult as they want. The Invention Log is just a tool to help foster organizational skills as well as self-flection.
• (Also, keep ready to see how I differentiated in my class!)
When I used this with my classes, students (of all learning levels) easily understood exactly what to do when it came to recording their inventions. I had a LOT of different learning levels in one class, so I would give really challenging problems to certain students while giving easier problems to other students (and everything in between). Since the Invention Log works for any challenge, I was able to give directions to the entire class (“I want everybody to turn to page 3 and complete that page) - everyone had a different level of difficulty, but no one felt singled out! It worked REALLY well! Students who typically struggled felt confident and eager to share what they invented =)
