📱 WrAPP Up The School Year With This End-of-Year Activity!
Are you looking for a way for your students to reflect on their school year? This resource will get students thinking about their favourite memories and drawing an app icon for each. Maybe your students tried a new sport, went on an exciting excursion or made a new best friend. Students will have fun creating their own cell phones full of personal memories.
To complete this activity, have your students design 12 app icons. These icons can be filled with pictures and/or words representing memories from the school year. Students will cut out each app and glue it onto the mobile template. Afterwards, students will choose three of their icons and write about why they decided to choose those memories
Through this activity, students will show they can express their memories through visual and written means.
