Activity Sheets

Activity sheets are web pages that contain a description of a classroom, lab or field activity and include related files and handouts. The format for activity pages is standardized across the SERC websites. Activity sheets are designed to:
  1. Provide all of the information a faculty member needs to successfully implement an activity
  2. Enable faculty to readily determine if they want to learn more about this example

The Parts of an Activity

Each activity is structured with 8 parts:

  • Heading which contains the activity title, author attribution, email, a brief summary of activity, and a related image that provides context with visual appeal
