Inventions of World War I & World War II - Research and Presentation in Canva

Inventions of World War I & World War II - Research and Presentation in Canva

This unit connects learning with technology to Social Studies. This is perfect for technology class or for use in a Social Studies or History classroom that wants to incorporate technology with a lesson. No download is required to use Canva (www.canva.com ) - a free product), making it easy for teachers who are not able to download software on classroom computers to still give their students a choice in learning. In this lesson, students are provided with a quick tutorial, as well as links to other resources to help them with their project. The tutorial is intended to help students get started with the program and then use the resources within the program to refine their creations. Students create a presentation about some of the things that were invented because of World War I or World War II after researching them. They use that information along with graphics, pictures and background (supplied in Canva) to create a finished presentation that explains the history of the inventions and adds their own opinions and insights to it. This is an excellent creative project to add to a unit on World War I or World War II. The project was created for grades 7-8 but could easily be used with upper elementary or high school students. Files Included with this Lesson • Teacher & Student Notes and Resources • Student Project Expectations and Grading Rubric • Getting Started Tutorial for Canva

Outstanding Drawing in PowerPoint Resource

Outstanding Drawing in PowerPoint Resource

FULL LESSON: Includes Starter, Video Tutorials, Lesson Presentation, Print Screen Instructions and Printable Plenary. Not to mention differentiation with the Scaffolding presentation. Fantastic resource for a new Year 7 or Year 8 class to test their skills in problem solving and using drawing tools in PowerPoint. Students will use a range of tools such as the Intersect option when you merge group shapes and editing points on shapes to change basic shapes to match their need. Not to mention building on Audience and Purpose skills! The plenary can be either self or peer assessment but the printable worksheet is available for you to print. I used this lesson with a Year 7 class and was graded as Outstanding. So I know this lesson can get you outstanding. The weaker students use the Scaffolding presentation as it has some of the basic shapes and outlines to help them on their way.

Algorithm Demonstration

Algorithm Demonstration

A simple but effective introduction to the concept of algorithms. Students are shown a series of random numbers one at a time, and have to tell the teacher which is the largest number. They don't know the range, and they don't know the quantity of numbers. However, all students can do it, by quickly creating a set of simple rules to follow in their head - an algorithm. Without realising it they create a set of instructions to follow, they create a variable, and they carry out comparison tests. They use input, and output, and effectively demonstrate all of the attributes of a simple algorithm. This demonstration can then be used to introduce these ideas, and the whole concept of computational thinking.
