      It shows missing files instead of pictures for the fruit and stationery, I dont know if its my schools firewall blocking them or if the activity is broken.

      Both activities work for me at school using Crome.

      @Tohokuteach it's probably your school's firewall blocking 'blogspot.com', which is where the images are hosted.
      I find it interesting that there are so many firewall configurations at the different schools...

      For example:
      pen: https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-RwlMqLQKy5w/W9RcJO7QpAI/AAAAAAABPog/51Aezmj8hTA1gaCqvBtpvhKCQXiEQVzYwCLcBGAs/s8192/bunbougu_ballpen.png

      This is awesome! Thanks!
      I had an idea for a "blackout" button, that would hide the items on push.
      I showed it on the TV at the front of class. Once they got used to it, after a few seconds I switched tabs to hide the items. First, I had volunteers raise their hands and say how many they thought were there, then second I had them say how many they thought there were to their partner.
      If there was a button that blacked out just the items but still allowed to enter guesses that'd be amazing.

      @jason It is done. There's a button in the top right for you.

      This is great! However, is there a way to add more items? Apparently, there are three objects only, I wonder if we could add more. Thank you!

      Thanks for this! I have also taken screenshots of it and used it in lessons as just a still-image!

      That hide button is a game-changer

      @amazingallen Kind of, it's open source. https://github.com/earthiverse/altivities/tree/main/source/wordlists/Plurals has the current wordlists, more can be made.

      If anyone has a request for a new wordlist, @me on the Altopedia Discord in the #online-and-game-engine-development channel, that's probably the best way to contact me.
