This free Instagram activity encourages students to research people who are inspirational and have made personal sacrifices. Now, more than ever, it's important for students to research historical figures, local heroes, and others who exemplify kindness, tolerance, and generosity.

Students use their research for reading, writing, and creating Instagram posts. Furthermore, they write clever hashtags to accompany their posts.

This resource includes a blank Instagram template (PDF and editable PowerPoint slide), a teacher model, instructions, a student handout, and an "evaluating a website" handout. If you like this free resource, please leave feedback.
