The Life Cycle of the Ant Digital Interactive Notebook is designed to support the Next Generation Science Standards for investigations of life cycles in third grade (3LS1.b). This Google Slides® life cycles project is a virtual lab for students to engage, explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate while engaged in the Science and Engineering Practices (SEP) of the NGSS.

The project follows the 5-E model of science learning. Each slide is annotated with one of the behaviors of the 5-E model of instruction. Additionally, the slide is annotated with the specific SEP of the NGSS.

WHY TEACH USING GOOGLE APPS?

Though many tasks can be done with paper and pencil, doing the same task through Google Apps can present greater opportunities for student learning. Google Slides can embed links to useful videos; Google Slides can enhance understanding with color diagrams, pictures and photographs; animation can also be embedded and use to demonstrate a concept. Most importantly, students are using 21st century learning tools that will prepare them for eventual online standardized testing.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

➜ Read Me File with Teacher Instructions for downloading the Google Slides File

➜ A 16 Slide Google Slides Life Cycle of the Ant Project

➜ Instructions for assigning the Google Slides File to students

➜ Suggestions for how to use a Digital Interactive Notebook with students

➜ Answer Key

➜ Printable Note Taking Sheet for students

➜ Instructions on how to use the Google Slides file on other platforms such as OneDrive or SeeSaw and more

➜ Scoring Guides

➜ A list of Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (3rd grade) (integrated into the project as well as the NGSS standards supported.

➜ Video Tutorial (link) for students to learn how to use the Digital Interactive Notebook

HOW IT WORKS

Each student is assigned the Life Cycle of the Ant Google Slides Project. Each slide has a specific task involved based on the 5-E model. On the slide, students observe and collect data from images and a video or website link. Students take notes that are then used to complete the slide.

Instructions for the students are contained in the Speaker Notes section.

Students can refer to the video tutorial if they are unsure on using Google Slides.

Students should also utilize print resources that you provide or they find on their own.

The Read Me file for the teacher includes the task involved on each slide.

Students can work individually, in pairs or small groups.

✏ Once students complete a slide or the entire project, evaluate their learning with the included scoring guide and answer key

Benefits!

✰ This project will save the teacher valuable time! All the images, video links, website links have been screened and gathered all in one place to make it easy to start teaching with the NGSS.

✰ The Google Slides file has already been created for you with support for the 5-E model and NGSS. Answer key and scoring guides also save teacher time and preparation.

✰ The project is paperless so no endless color copying! Also, there's no having to spend hours finding the resources (images, videos, websites) that are kid friendly while having accurate information.

✰ Just add your own print resources from your existing science curriculum or teacher created resources.

✰ The project is self-paced and open-ended.

✰ Easy to integrate with live science observations of ants! Teachers are encouraged to keep live ants in the classroom for more hands-on observation and data collection.

✰ Technology integration is being used to think critically, communicate, collaborate and create which are the Four Cs of 21st Century Learning.
