Flipgrid by Sydni Sonnier
❓ Tell us about it!
"Students are working in WIN (What I Need) Time to enrich their understanding of one of our 4th grade essential standards where students are expected to recognize characteristics and structures of informational text, including the central idea with supporting evidence (4.9Di). For this activity, Students picked an article of their choice to read from the 3rd and 4th Grade Section of the Time For Kids website. Students identified the central idea and supporting details in order to write a summary about the article. Finally, Students shared their summary in a short "Breaking News" newscast on Flipgrid that engaged the audience by presenting the information as a 'teaser' that will would make other students want to read their article. (This activity was adapted from an activity originally shared on the FlipGrid Discovery Page to fit student expectations and level of understanding of the standard.)"
🎬 Show us! Flipgrid in action! (Video)
