Are you tired of boring bulletin boards? Bring your classroom into the 21st century with an Instagram inspired, student-centered interactive board your kids will love to help create. The Histagram Interactive Bulletin Board Kit has everything you need to give your students a chance to create and imagine what social media might have looked like had it been available to people in history. Would Van Gough have posted a selfie after chopping off his ear? Would bustles in women’s dresses really have become a fashion rage if people had been able to ask the question: Will I fit through the door? Or perhaps more thought provoking, would slavery had ended sooner if abolitionists had been able to post pictures of what life as a slave really looked like and share them instantaneously?
Using the Histagram template, your students will create usernames, hashtags, and comments to post to weekday themes like Throwback Thursday or Man Crush Monday that have been altered to fit historical events, trends, or people. For example, on Throwback Thursday, students write about an event that you are studying. This kit was designed to be used in a variety of different ways; use it as an in class activity, homework, exit slip, entrance slip, interest board, with ANY unit!! One buyer said they used it as the template for current events each week! The choice is up to you!
Complete with over 40 pages of printables, templates, instructions, EDITABLE templates, and implementation ideas, the Histagram Bulletin Board Kit will have your students engaged, learning, and creating.
BE WARNED: These WILL lead to engaging class discussions.
