Consider using curation tools such as Padlet, reviewed here, or Wakelet, reviewed here, to organize resources for easy retrieval. Padlet and Wakelet are also handy when sharing information and resources with students. As you begin your lessons on American Indians, begin with a formative assessment to gauge your students' understanding of the topic. Use an easy online quiz tool such as Baamboozle, reviewed here, to engage students in your learning activities. As you continue in your lessons, continue to motivate and engage students using Wooclap, reviewed here, to review information either in class or as a homework activity. Instead of testing to assess knowledge upon completing your unit, offer students the opportunity to share their understanding of content in various ways. Examples include creating an infographic using Canva Infographic Maker, reviewed here, an explainer video made using simpleshow video maker, reviewed here, and an interactive map built using Google My Maps, reviewed here.

Before sharing with students, consider demonstrating how to play and avoid ads on your interactive whiteboard. Then, add a link to student computers to use during computer centers to become familiar with the locations of states and countries and learn how to identify nations' flags. After learning about geographic areas, ask students to choose a country or state to research. As students learn about their selected country, use Google Jamboard, reviewed here, to create a template for students to add facts and information by creating a frame for each country or state. Finally, extend learning using Google My Maps, reviewed here, to create an interactive map with links to each location that includes images, videos, and descriptions of the site written by students.

These activities would be great to supplement your reading and history lessons. First, using the wordplay section of the lesson, students learn five new vocabulary words by reading the word and definition, then using the interactive features to draw a picture, use it in a sentence, and act it out. Next, have your class work together using the interactive mind map to practice sequencing or to extend learning about the concepts learned in the video. When finished, mind maps, drawings, and writings can all be printed or saved as images.
