1. Students were broken down into small groups.
2. Each group was randomly given a section to read and tell the class about. (Jigsaw)
3. Each group was directed to create a visual representation of their section to present with their explanation to the class using an Android app of their choice.
This activity worked wonderfully and I love that students are able to connect a visual representation of what they are reading to help in understanding/processing. Here is one of the works of art my students created (In only 5 minutes!) using an app called Paint Joy. This app is great because it records each stroke you make and plays it back to you in a video format Other apps that were used today by different student groups included Whiteboard and Skitch.
