Martin Luther King on Instagram?
Sixth grade students used some creative and out of the box thinking to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr for his birthday. After taking part in an interactive Prezi presentation, students worked in pairs to bring #MLK into our #insta_world by brainstorming what MLK would take a photo of with his smart phone if he were to have one. They used their Google Chrome book camera capability to snap photos of students of different races waiting on line for the same water fountain and working collaboratively as well as some more abstract ideas such as an Oreo cookie. Students were then assigned to write a quick statement to describe their photos (just like on Instagram) and write 2-3 clever hashtags. #way_to_go #sixth_grade_swag
