Baby Monkey, Private Eye—Use the GooseChase Adventures app to take a scavenger hunt in your classroom or library.
Can I Be Your Dog?—Try writing letters as a dog looking for owners. Using a library book, snap a cover of a dog non-fiction book and use Chatter-pix to bring your letter to life. Share using SeeSaw.
Charlotte and the Rock—Navigate a Sphero through a maze (be careful to avoid the dinosaurs/rocks).
Creepy Pair of Underwear—Make an underwear drawer or bedroom alarm using Snap Circuits. How about origami underwear? Draw a face and make them creepy!

Legend of Rock, Paper, Scissors— Have an epic Rock, Paper, Scissors battle using Do Ink and a green screen. I use green science fair project board.

To aid school librarians in nurturing inclusive learning communities, AASL tasked a 2019 ALA Emerging Leaders team with developing a guide of reflection activities and resources based on the Include Shared Foundation in the National School Library Standards.
The Developing Inclusive Learners and Citizens Activity Guide uses scenarios, activities, and resources to help learners and school librarians alike seek balanced perspectives, global learning, empathy, tolerance, and equity to support inclusive environments within and beyond the four walls of the school library. An infographic and applied framework further support application of these materials in professional development and instructional settings. This guide is a great example to any practitioner of how the AASL Standards can be used as a lens to address ANY school library issue!
