userEducator Xello productXello 3-5 Time5 minutes

Many of the lessons have prerequisite activities in Xello that students must complete before they can start the lesson. For example, in order to start the Facing big challenges Mission, students must have added at least 1 achievement.

These prerequisites are used to personalize the lessons so that students can engage with and reflect on content that is meaningful to them. To help your students get even more value out of the prerequisites, check out the supplementary Xello activity lesson plan resources also linked in the table below.
