We have done Newsela a few times. They have had assignments and also the ability to choose themselves. We are working on reforesting and saving the Rainforest in Minecraft. There was some Microsoft 365 as we worked on Powerpoint, with the focus being on field trips. In Comic Life they created a poster for an important person for Kindness Week, and they also worked with math online and Google Docs experience.
They have worked on a couple different Minecraft worlds. One about a dragon and using it for story ideas, and another that was a scavenger hunt. Currently they are partnering up to create a spaceship and record their explorations. They have and will be working on budgets in Excel and formulas. They did some assessments on Earthquakes for science, Noun Icons for writing, Wordclouds and links entered into their Powerpoints, Rube Goldberg, and how to use the desktop apps with Microsoft 365.
