Blizzard Bags

Most of us are hoping for only light snow this winter, but INFOhio is helping prepare for the worst with INFOhio’s Blizzard Bags for K-12. The four bags focus on the following themes:

Each Blizzard Bag includes:

  • A complete customizable research unit;
  • Standards-aligned, cross-curricular options;
  • A teacher guide;
  • Low-tech and high-tech options;
  • Differentiation tips;
  • Templates for lesson customization;
  • Material for in-class instruction or home exploration; and
  • Recommendations for assessments, including standards-aligned rubrics.

Although the Blizzard Bags for the different grade bands center on different themes, they all support Ohio’s Learning Standards, especially research standards. Following the Dimensions of Inquiry, students create and explore essential questions, locate and evaluate information, apply and share information with others, and reflect on their learning.
