Lesson 3: Volunteering Collaboratively!:

Students will collaborate to create a scratch animation on volunteerism and present their project to the class. Students will check for errors and make corrections. This is lesson 3 of 3 in an integrated civics and computer science mini-unit. 

Type: Lesson Plan

Who Represents the US? (Part 2):

Students will utilize research completed on specific individuals (James Madison, Susan B. Anthony, Booker T. Washington, or Alexander Hamilton) who represent the United States of America to create and present a digital artifact.  The research worksheet was completed in Lesson 1 of this unit, Resource 209141. This is Lesson 2 of a 3-part integrated Civics and Computer Science mini-unit.

Type: Lesson Plan

Patriot, Loyalist, or Neutral- Part 2:

Students will be taking the informational notes from Lesson 1 to plan and create a group Scratch to inform others about the reasons why a colonist would have been a Patriot or a Loyalist.  Students will continue this lesson as the second part of a three-part Civics and Coding integrated series.

Type: Lesson Plan

Who Represents Us? Part 3:

Students will present their representative campaigns created in Scratch to the class. They will take notes during each presentation. A mini-voting session will take place after all campaigns have been reviewed.  This is the third and final part of an integrated computer science and civics mini-unit.

A "Seal" of Approval: Coding and Civics Integration Part III:

This lesson is the final lesson in a three-part mini-unit on coding and integrated civics. In this integrated civics lesson, students will be using all of the research and information gathered from the lesson II planning and design sheet in order to create a program on Scratch that explains the different components of the Great Seal of the United States. 

Type: Lesson Plan


This is Lesson 3 in an integrated Civics and Coding Unit.  In this lesson, students will produce Scratch programs based on the flow chart they created in Lesson 2 that depicts the U.S. impeachment process.

Showing up as a Citizen Coding Project Part 2:

In this Part 2 of a two-part series of integrated lessons, the students will design and present a scratch video where multiple characters interact to demonstrate acts of civility. Teachers may reference the first lesson Resource ID#: 208061, Showing up as a Citizen Coding Project Part 1.  The students will use prior knowledge of citizens demonstrating civility, cooperation, and volunteerism. Using their previously created Scratch planning sheet they will use Scratch to create a code that shows a character performing an act of civility. The students will use a rubric to guide their coding creation. Then the students will present their creations to their peers. 

Type: Lesson Plan

Patriotic Holidays with Scratch Coding - Part 2:

In this integrated lesson plan, students will use their prior research of a patriotic holiday or observance to create a Scratch presentation that demonstrates their understanding of the history and meaning behind the patriotic holiday or observance. The students will work in collaborative partner groups to pair program the Scratch project to reflect their research. The partner groups will then present their digital project to the class and conduct a class discussion on different patriotic holidays and observances.
