This free Instagram activity for the holiday season gets students researching about 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 power point slide), teacher model, instructions, student handout, and a (new) "evaluating a website" handout. If you like this free resource, please leave feedback.
