Classroom Activity Ideas
- Communicate with Parents, while showcasing student work: Take photos of student work, create a flipagram and post to your class instagram account. You can also email the flipagram directly to parents.
- Students can create animated slideshows that they can use to tell a story, showcase work they've done or demonstrate what they've learned in a unit
- Have students make a flipagram to present a particular subject or idea....such as the eight parts of speech, types of clouds, process of metamorphisis, events leading to the civil war, the scientific method, or New England Colonies-Southern Colonies-Middle Colonies.
- Students doing a laboratory experiment could take photos of each phase of the experiment and the results. The audio can be made with a recording app or the built-in voice memo app to create narration. Students can record the process, the outcome, and what they learned.
