It's been too long since I've linked up with my friend Holly for her Tried it Tuesday. We've been studying cells in science and I had a worksheet of a plant cell ready to be copied and labeled by my students today. But at the last minute I remembered some interesting posts I'd read lately about Thinglink, a website that lets you tag images and make them interactive.
So we quickly and easily set up Thinglink accounts and uploaded an image we found online of a plant cell. Then we located and labeled the different parts with brief definitions for each. I love that in addition to text, you can also tag a hyperlink. For our chloroplasts, we tagged a video from Studyjams that explains how photosynthesis works.
Now, instead of a boring worksheet, my kiddos each have their own interactive visual of a plant cell to reference. This is why I love technology.
Feel free to check out one of my kiddos' Thinglink below.
