Build with Chrome Know of a student obsessed with Minecraft or Legos? Google has partnered with Lego to bring you Build with Chrome, an online Lego creation tool. Students can make, save, and share their creations. If they find this too limiting, Lego fans might get more out of this lego digital designer 4.3.12 download, which is free to donwload and goes as far as to allow users to paint each individual brick of Lego a different color.
Adobe Spark is an awesome set of tools for creating visual presentations. The suite features allow students to create posts, web stories and animated video content. The tools are easy to use and kid friendly. Students will be creating amazing content in no time.
Quizlet allows students to create study sets, like flash cards and other games that will help them review important content. Students can browse the near 150,000,000 sets already there or create their own. Quizlet Live also offers an engaging game for the classroom.
Bitsbox This website gives students the opportunity to learn basic coding skills. Unlike drag and drop programs, Bitsbox actually allows students to write code, giving them a more authentic coding experience in order to create fun apps.
Piktochart Learning can increase when visual information accompanies text and data. Want students to create their own infographics? Piktochart provides easy to use templates to get students started in creating great visual demonstrations of information. Charts, Roadmaps, and more, as well as integration with Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, and Survey Monkey make this a great tool for students to visualize data.
Seesaw Many teachers are now using Seesaw as a great formative assessment tool. Students can use the drawing/recording tool to document their learning, or teachers can share hands on activities with parents using photo documentation of student learning. Have students create and share their own digital portfolios with the world.

Quizizz If you have used Kahoot in the classroom, you will know the power of the Quiz Show to engage students in a review of content.

Find one of the many quizzes already created or make you own to gather formative assessment data.
