Best Quesadilla

I changed the food to be more culturally relevant to our school and our New Mexican culture. Instead of designing an algorithm for the best PB&J, this lesson tasks students with planning the best quesadilla. Our school population is majority Hispanic students who live in Albuquerque and mostly come from the South Valley. They will have more of a connection to quesadillas than to PB&J sandwiches. Optimizing a quesadilla algorithm for stakeholders may be more relevant to their culture and family.

Quesadilla Ethical Matrix

For this lesson I changed the food listed to quesadillas (building on the previous lesson, Algorithms as Opinions), I also added a formative assessment to better help students connect to stakeholders in their lives and communities. Students who participate in the previous lesson (Algorithms as Opinions) will be able to carry it forward into a real-world connection by thinking about their out-of-school activity, the relevant stakeholders and their values.

Best Bocadillo

Making the best sandwich instead of PB & J for those who have not experienced PB & J. The reason I made this change is because there is a large Hispanic population in my area who do not make sandwiches with peanut butter and jelly and so a sandwich in general is more relevant to students of diverse populations such as Latinx, Asian, etc.

Introduction to bias for ELLs

The change made was adding an introduction to bias, distinguishing between facts and opinions, perspectives, and biases, tailored for ESL, bilingual, and regular students to comprehend bias in AI. This modification was designed to provide students with varying language proficiencies and backgrounds a foundation in understanding bias within the context of artificial intelligence, fostering inclusivity and equitable learning experiences.

Classifying living things

The adjustment involved incorporating a lesson of classifying living things to illustrate decision trees, crafted for ESL, bilingual, and regular students to comprehend decision trees in AI. This adaptation aimed to offer students with various language proficiencies and learning styles an accessible means to grasp decision-making processes, promoting inclusivity and enthusiasm for decision trees concepts.

Decision Trees - Alien Gathering

Alien Gathering is a modification of the lesson plan 0.4 Decision Trees. In this lesson students begin with an activity in which a decision tree is made for a "Family" of aliens. This activity is intended to be used in one of two ways. It can be used as a substitute for the activity "Pastaland" or as an additional lesson activity used prior to the "Pastaland" activity.

I am from poem

This lesson student will create an “I am from Poem”. This is an introduction lesson to get to know your students and to start building relationships. Building positive relationships is the foundation for motivating students to want to learn. It shows students that respect their opinions and interests.

AI or Not ? Teacher Made

This is a modified Version of the AI or Not resources to include some more current and student friendly images.

Neural Networks - Unplugged

Use post-it notes or can use the document to print 2 sided (hopefully it lines up correctly) to use to write words on and feed forward to work through the Neural Network. Makes working with a large group of students easier to handle because everyone is included. I also printed the network handout for the students to track how the words flowed through and kept record of it on the whiteboard.

AI/ELA Integration for grades 3-5

This storyboard model provides a basic structure for integration of ELA and AI concepts. This activity is intended for students who have already been exposed to poetry and What is AI? lessons. The objective of this lesson is to have students demonstrate understanding of what are basic AI technologies and what are the three major components of AI as well as command of poetry.

PastaLand - Hands-On

Modification to PastaLand digital lesson activity to physically complete (with pictures of students using materials)

What is AI? Analogy Teacher Made

This storyboard model provides a basic structure for integration of ELA and AI concepts. This activity is intended for students who have already been exposed to Poetry and the lesson called What is AI?


A hands-on version of the AI or Not? sorting activity in which students sort pictures of contemporary technology into two groups: technology with AI and technology without AI. The activity is designed to get students thinking about the three parts of machine learning (dataset, learning algorithm, prediction) as a tool for determining whether the technology in their everyday life uses AI or not.
