Do you have a Merge Cube?   Are you looking for content based Merge Cube lessons?

This Merge Cube lesson plan works with the THINGS! app Pirate Island.  When students hold the merge cube in their hands, it looks as though they are looking through a telescope at a semi-deserted island that appears to have been occupied by pirates!  In this lesson, students will brainstorm 3 items that they think they would need to survive on this island.  They will then continue developing each idea by creating a simile, personification, descriptive adjective and a specific description of how they will carry that item.  These ideas will then be translated into a creative poem!

The poem writing process is scaffolded through both a graphic organizer and a writing guide.  The writing guide is also DIFFERENTIATED!!  There are two versions; one with a greater level of scaffolding.  You'll be proud of your student's results as they write poetry inspired by AUGMENTED REALITY!

Haven't  Heard of Merge Cube??
 Merge Cubes are one of the hottest new trends in Educational Technology at the moment. Integrating AR/VR principles, a merge cube allows you to hold a hologram IN YOUR HAND!! The Merge Cube is basically a Augmented Reality trigger. Each side of the cube has a distinct pattern which is recognized by the Merge Cube suite of apps. When a Merge Cube app is launched and you aim your digital device at the cube you activate a variety of Augmented Reality Experiences.
