50 classroom activities for Middle School

Posted by Melinda Kolk on Jul 16, 2023 6:42:44 AM

Using a device to fill out a digital worksheet isn’t any more compelling than using a pencil to fill out a paper version. Encourage students to show what they know and capitalize on their interest in technology by creating digital projects on classroom topics using media formats that abound in the world around them.

This blog shares ideas for digital projects students can create in Wixie to meet standards and learning goals in middle school, whether students are learning at school or at home. The blog is divided into sections for:

• Language Arts
• Math
• Science
• Social Studies
• Arts & SEL

Each idea includes a sample and a text link to open a template you can assign as a teacher, or use as a student, immediately. The end of each subject area section also includes two products students can create with ideas for implementing that product in multiple areas.
