Searchable Activity Sheet

This still in progress Google Sheet‘s intention is to combine all the above resources into one easy to use and searchable document. The idea is teacher will be able to find activities to do with their students specific to the materials they have access to, the grades they teach, the subject they are exploring, the NGSS standard they are meeting and more. It’s not quite perfect yet, but still useful!
