Reflection: Lesson Planning Crayfish Vs. Snail - Section 3: Poster Power


This would be a great lesson to have students complete on their iPads or to create PowerPoint in the computer lab. The reason we went the old fashioned way was due to our state testing preparation. All of our students will be taking the state assessments on the iPads or in the computer lab. This has caused a brief halt to how often we are given the iPads to use in our classroom. Thank goodness the modification of a lesson like this is easy to do because it just requires poster board or large pieces of construction paper. If we did use the iPads I would have used the app Explain Everything. This allows students to type, add pictures, and voice over there notes and make it a more dynamic presentation that would not take too long to create.
