Name the School Object…

Are you looking to do something different to avoid those “blank face gaze”. Send the students out on a mission to capture photos of everyday objects in the classroom or throughout the school. Set a time limit for returning to their seat. Once students are back in seats provide them with a link to a Google Forms where they will upload the images. Now open the folder and click on the Chrome Driveslides extension, and boom a slide deck of images is created. Brainstorm with the students how you may use the images to support the content area.

Example ideas:

  • Spanish Class:
    • Create a custom vocabulary
    • Write a story about the image
    • Add an audio recording explaining what the image is.
      • Vocaroo is an easy to use audio recorder
        • Allows you to save audio files to your drive
  • Math:
    • Create math word problems involving the images
    • Look for shapes
    • Find the area and perimeter of objects in the image
  • ELA:
    • Write a school adventure illustrated story
    • Describe an image and it’s usage
    • Create school how to tutorials using the images
