PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

What is a meme? Students will no doubt know exactly what a meme is, but probably have a hard time defining one. This bundle includes a 55-slide presentation that breaks down memes and prompts them to create their own. Students are provided with "What People Think I Do/What I Really Do" templates and prompts. (See links below for additional templates.)

It's a perfect project for a getting-to-know-you first-day icebreaker. In addition, I included several other activities so you can utilize this resource throughout the year. Do it for a character or historical-figure study, a career exploration research project, and/or a sociology research project looking at stereotypes.

Your students will love the humorous examples of the memes in the presentation and will have a lot of fun creating their own.

The zipped file includes:
-Teacher's Presentation (55 engaging slides to introduce, define, explain, and demonstrate memes). Includes Powerpoint (ppt), Keynote (key), and PDF files.

-"What I Really Do" Printables (PDF file)

-Icebreaker Meme Student Presentation (11 slides). Includes Powerpoint (ppt) & Keynote (key) files.

-Character/Historical Figure Meme Activity Student Presentation (11 slides). Includes Powerpoint (ppt) & Keynote (key) files.

-Career Meme Activity Student Presentation (11 slides). Includes Powerpoint (ppt) & Keynote (key) files.

For ADDITIONAL templates your students will love, check out these other meme activities:
-Socratic Seminar Questioning Activity Using "Y U No" Meme for ANY Class or Content Area
-"Some ECards" Meme Activity & Templates

On  August 21, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi teacherrjd - Thanks for your feedback. The cost includes not just the icebreaker activity, but the research project and history/literature activities, so it's like 3 products in one. Plus, it is a 1:1 resource; resources that can be shared electronically (legally) with students are going to be more costly for the convenience. You won't find too many sellers (or companies) that allow it. -Tracee

On  August 15, 2013,  Buyer asked:
I am having troubles opening and viewing some of the content. Especially the document titled PkgInfo. Also, the picture thumbnails are extremely small and when I zoom in, they are blurry. I have a PC is this the problem?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  August 15, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Hills46 - I'm not sure what "PkgInfo" is...that isn't in the download. Did you download it from your "My Purchases" page or the Preview? The Preview and thumbnails are just a glimpse of what is included for those who haven't purchased (the thumbnails are limited to a very small size). You should be able to open the contents of the full download from your "My Purchases" using Powerpoint and Adobe Acrobat Reader for the pdf files. (You will not be able to open the Keynote files - those are for Mac users. But they are the exact same files as the Powerpoints.) Hope that helps! -Tracee

On  February 3, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Raylenedodson - Thanks for your purchase and sorry you are having problems. There are instructions on the "My Purchases" page for PC users with a link to WinZip free download to unzip products. Also, you may want to try re-downloading it. It's really busy with the sale and sometimes the site gets glitchy. Best to download again and make sure it downloads completely before trying to open. If neither works, contact tech support (see link in your "My Purchases" page). They can probably help you better than me when it comes to computer stuff. -Tracee
