Interactive Poster Board Lesson
Have students demonstrate their understanding of a topic by creating a poster board that "Tells" the viewer about what they "See" on the board.
Example - Information about Salmon at the Fry Stage
1. Brainstorm what information is important about Fry.
2. Choose 5 things you want to teach others about.
3. Write 5 sentences
4. Draw a picture on your poster board that depicts the information you want to talk about. Besides your title, do not label your picture. Choose a side of your poster board for your 5 interactive pieces. Choose how you would like to label them. (1,2,3 or A, B, C, or Titles that go with your sentences). *Be sure to leave space between each one.
6. Go to "Sound" and select the microphone. This will let you record a new sound / sentence. Title your sound (sentence). When ready, press the RECORD (circle) button and speak clearly. Press STOP when finished. Preview your recording by pressing PLAY. If you don't like it, delete it and try again.
7. Repeat step 6 for all 5 of your sentences
11. Set up your Makey Makey. Attach your leads to the Space Bar, Up Arrow, Down Arrow, Right Arrow, and Left Arrow on the Makey Makey Board. Attach a lead for GROUND.
12. On your Poster Board attach a small piece of tin foil to your poster board for each label with a little bit of glue. Be sure your tin foil does not touch each other.
13. Attach the other end of your leads to the tin foil on your poster board. At this time you will need to think about the order of your sentences.
14. Attach the USB cord to the Makey Makey and your computer. Be sure your Scratch program is open.
15. Now touch the Ground Lead to the poster board where one of your other leads are. When you complete the circuit you should here your sentence.
