In computer science class, we drew maps, diagrams and pictures to help describe what we imagine when we think about how the internet is structured. This activity was based on a similar project seen here: Internet Mapping

Below are some examples from our class:

As a final project for our unit on hardware components, the students described the purpose of each of the three main components and gave an example of how the component will be involved in their future careers!

In Algebra Readiness, we compared the heights of Tony, Rufus and Doofus in order to better understand the symbols used for "greater than," "less than" and "equal." One student put all three diagrams into one that really shows the relationships!
