In the Classroom

Take advantage of these many resources to take a virtual visit with your class to the Smithsonian Museum. View artifacts and tours together on an interactive whiteboard or with a projector then allow students to explore on their own. After viewing a tour, ask students to research a topic further. Instead of a written book report have students create an online quiz or game for fellow students using a quiz tool like Arcade Game Generator, reviewed here, or Quiznetic, reviewed here. Use a video response tool like Flipgrid, reviewed here, for student collaboration and sharing of research. Ask students to create their own virtual field trip using Google Earth, reviewed here. Have students add articles, images, and videos to locations featured on their virtual trip.

Share a link to your Symbaloo Webmix on your class website or classroom computers for easy student access. Use an online infographic creator, such as Canva, reviewed here, to create infographics including images and facts about biomes. Instead of asking students to create written reports at the end of your biome unit, have students create maps sharing locations and features of different biomes using Animaps, reviewed here. Students can add text, images, and location stops!
