    Thank you so much for posting this material! Could you also post the Google form you used to collect the student introductory information that populated into the Google spreadsheet?

    And, you mentioned a jigsaw activity where the students produced 12 slides in Google drive. If you could post those instructions, too, it would be appreciated!
