Product Description
This comprehensive Middle School NGSS activity pack on Digital and Analog Signals is designed to align with the NGSS Middle School MS-PS4-3 standards.

MS-PS4-3 - Integrate qualitative scientific and technical information to support the claim that digitized signals are a more reliable way to encode and transmit information than analog signals.

This pack contains 6 activities that can be used individually as is or combined to make science stations (signage is included).

The activities are:

1. Watch It - in this activity the students are asked to watch Youtube videos on analog and digital and answer questions on their understanding of the terminology.
This is ideal as preparatory homework for the next activity Read It! which compliments this activity.

2. Read It! - This activity should take one class. Students should be familiar with the concept of waves, amplitude and frequency. Read It! combines science and literacy. Just print the 2 page handout and distribute to the students who can read and work quietly on this activity for the class. There are 8 questions on the handout and the students should write the answers to these in their science journals. You could give this as homework or use as a sub-plan as well.

3. Sort It! - The students must sort the items into either analog or digital. Then they must pick 2 from each list and give reasons as to why they are on that list.

4. Digitize It! -The purpose of this activity is to give the student an appreciation for the different types of digitized educational media available online.

5. Tech It! - At this station the students will use both analog and digital techniques to find the temperature and pH of some common items. They will record their results in a table and compare both techniques.

6. Sample It! - This is a lovely activity that shows the students simply and visually how analog sound is sampled and converted into a digital signal.
