A favorite craft of young children is perler beads. Don't remember perler beads? Those were those little tiny cylinder shaped beads that you arranged on a little peg board. Once arranged you broke out the clothes iron and melted the beads a tad to keep them together.
Breaking out an iron in a middle of clothes though may not be the best idea, or having books of perler beads spilled across your floor may not make you to happy. So to still get the creativity of perler beads without the mess try using the Perler Beads Google Sheet template here: Perler Beads - Halloween.
Learners can use the different editing formatting tools inside Google Sheets to create the amazing scenes. You can see a synopsis of the different tools below:
Take control of your screen with Tab Resize! Tab Resize allows you to automatically split your Chrome tabs across your screen in the arrangement of your choosing quickly and easily. This can allow students to easily read information on one part of the screen and type their thoughts on the other side. This is a super handy extension to have in your toolkit of resources!
