Heard of Twitter? (harhar) This PDF document VERY closely resembles a Twitter homepage. Because students are so familiar with Twitter and social media, this activity is HIGHLY MOTIVATIONAL and incorporates visual elements, writing, and allows for a variety of high and low-level thinking. Due to the versatility of the template, it can be used for most any content area and can meet the needs of your advanced and below basic learners.
HOW TO USE IT:
Print the template and have individuals or pairs choose a character, historical figure, or even a cell part to portray through the Twitter page. Based on their knowledge of their character and time period, students complete the template by making drawings and writing ‘tweets’ from their character or ‘followers’.
