Watch & Learn American Black History with Response Sheets

If you are lucky enough to have access to technology devices (ipods, ipads, tablets, etc.), then this center is for your students! You have to be able to download a FREE QR Scanner App. My QR Code Themed iPads, iPod Stories (need internet access) as well as all of my QR Code activities (that don't need internet access) in my store can be used with ANY technology device that has QR Scanning capabilities. You need to download a QR Scanner/Reader from the App Store.

If you have purchased any of my iPad Stories or iPod Stories, this iPad is a bit different. The focus of this iPad is learning about a few Famous Black Americans. The QR Codes reveal videos that will allow your students to learn about these Black Americans in an engaging way. I have provided Response Sheets for each Famous Black American featured. I feel this iPad is geared more towards 2-5, but I use it for my higher level First Graders.

There are 9 videos/stories included on the Black History iPad
Black History iPad includes the following videos:
The ABC's of Black History by Craig Thompson (ABC Book format that reveals many Famous Black Americans)
Barack Obama
Mr. President Meets Kid President (fun!)
George Washington Carver
Ruby Bridges
Rosa Parks (2 videos)
Martin Luther King Jr.
Martin's Big Words presented by Weston Woods

I created an 'ipad' that has 9 active QR Codes looking like an 'App' on an iPad. The codes reveal short stories or biographies of Famous Black Americans. Your students can independently scan and then 'watch' the video~much like a listening center! More than one student can be engaged at once.

This iPad took some time to create to make it 'kid safe.' Please respect that this purchase is for one classroom. The videos are derived from YouTube, but are funneled through the SafeShare site to ensure that students are not watching or seeing things they shouldn't be seeing. Students are not able to surf on the internet. When the QR Code is scanned, the story pops up and the student pushes play.

If your school/district blocks or filters certain internet sites, please download my FREE Christmas Tunes iPad (Freebie!)and try the QR Codes in your classroom/school. If the Christmas Tunes iPad works, then you should have no problems with any of the story iPads/iPods that are sold in my store.

Directions for Use: Print the iPad provided, laminate and cut out. The QR Codes will still scan with the laminate. :) It's easy to implement and fun for kids! You can also hook your device up to your smartboard for the whole class to view. The kids love being independent and scan the codes! Preview the Response Sheets also provided. Print and Copy what you like for your students to use or put the sheets in your Writing Center!
