Using the concept of social media is a great way to interest and engage your students. This fake Instagram template allows students to add text and pictures but keeps the design locked so that they won't mistakenly move or delete the background.
There are so many uses for this, use it with reading to have students highlight a character or setting. Use it with social studies (as I did) to focus on a historical person. Use it with science and have students record their information from an animal's point of view.
When students are using the template they only need to click the mountain in the picture box to upload their picture or click the text box to type their information. What could be easier?
Also I save my students' finished work as a JPEG (one of the saving choices in PowerPoint) so that is a picture when finished and doesn't require opening PowerPoint when students are viewing their project.
You can see how my students used this project on my library blog. While there you can also download the Civil War sheet I used with them for free.

I also have a texting template.
Note: After downloading resave file as a template to allow multiple students to access the template at once.
Thanks for looking
