Tinker With Storytelling

littleBits isn't just a resource for the STEM classroom; it can enhance lessons across the subject areas. In this lesson, students combine Bits with arts and crafts materials to tell a story that brings some essential trait of each character to life. This is also a wonderful STEAM enhancement to a language arts lesson based on archetypes from myth, fable, folk and fairy tales, history, or popular culture.

Money Scales

Are objects worth as much as they weigh? In this activity, your students will build a simple circuit with Bits to investigate this question. The lesson helps students practice money and measurement skills as well as apply problem-solving skills in an interesting, unordinary way.

Power Cities

Powering every city and town is a unique and complex electricity grid, complete with power sources, substations, transmission wires, and electrical outputs. In this lesson, students build and power their own city to understand electricity and the electronics that many of us use every day.
