iPad Activity for Black History Month unwrAPPed!
Celebrate Black History Month by easily integrating this no prep iPad activity packet into your reading or social studies block. Students will use the app Mad Lips or Chatterpix to create a talking video portrait of a famous Black American with a moving mouth! Packet includes:
★ 1 QR research sheet with 3 QR codes to direct students to student-friendly websites to gather information about the Black American they chose.
★ 5 full color step-by-step direction sheets with visuals to help students independently use the apps from start to finish.
★ 1 graphic organizer planner for students to use to write down their research.
★ 2 versions of writing paper to write their scripts. One with “Fill-in-the-blank” sentences for writers that need more support.
★ 2 rubrics that can be used to assess the finished project.
★ 1 "Quiet Please" recording sign for students to display when recording their videos.
Print out the activity pages and distribute to your students. Student sheets include step-by-step directions that tell them exactly how to use the app. The included teacher notes pages will explain exactly which pages to print and how to use them. To save ink, full color direction pages can be projected or printed for smaller groups to share or just printed once and displayed in a center.
I make sure my unwrAPPed packs have everything you need to get started - you do NOT need to know how to use the app yourself!
You will need the free app Mad Lips or Chatterpix. A QR code to get the app from the iTunes store is included in the packet.
Mad Lips is currently unavailable from the app store so directions for Chatterpix have been added to the latest update as an alternative. This includes all direction pages for using the app and alternative project planning pages. I have included directions for using Mad Lips as well if you already have the app or if it comes back to the app store
This project makes a great companion to my MLK unwrAPPed packet found here:
