PearDeck - it's an add-on for Google slides! I think it's appropriate for most grade levels. I never lecture any more and it's a great way to get formative feedback. Increases student participation because only you can see who says what, and you can display certain student answers anonymously as well to discuss.

Edpuzzle is a new one I’ve used. You can upload any video (YouTube khan academy etc). Once you upload the video you can edit them to add questions, voice over, cut the video, and much more. It also tells you how much of the video has been watched and will organize all your students answers so it’s easy to grade! You can then link them to your google classroom and edpuzzle will post the assignment in google classroom for you! Definitely check it out!

Quizizz is great ! It is similar to kahoot but better. I also use Quizlet live. I teach 8th grade Algebra 1 Honors. These are both great for any grade though.

Class craft has been by far the most enjoyable for the students.
Factile has been very helpful as well, especially when it's review time.

Our school uses Foss Kits for Science and I was told when students return, we will need to sanitize all items before and after each use. This doesn’t seem possible in a middle school setting where each period has a 4 minute break and 25 students in each period. What do you do in your classroom to minimize the amount of work needed to clean and sanitize items. I don’t want to short change the students’ hands-on experiences.
