Using the concept of social media is a great way to interest and engage your students. The Snapchat template allows students to add text and pictures but keeps most of the design locked so that they won't mistakenly move or delete background. There are so many uses for this template. Use it with reading to have students highlight a character. Use it with social studies to focus on a historical person. Use it with science and have students record their information from an animals or landform point of view. Use it for a beginning or end of school activity for your students to fill in information about them. 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?
To help your students plan their project a planning sheet and paper templates of Snapchat are included.
• 3 Snapchat editable screenshots templates for students to use
• 7 paper templates that mirror the PowerPoint templates for students to use
• Snapchat planning sheet note taking sheet
Note: 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. Also when students are working on the projects if you select the template format multiple students can access the template at the same time on your school shared drive.
In order to include the paper and the digital template it is a zipped file. To unzip simply right click on the folder after you download it and click extract all.
