How I Use It
We review the vocabulary and talk about the "before video" questions. Next, we watch the video, pausing it at certain points to discuss, and do the Kahoot lesson at the end. The following week we do the DIY activity. I only see my students once a week which is why I do the lessons this way.
My Take
What an incredible tool. I teach grades kindergarten through fifth in our school's STEM lab. It is so hard to try to create a curriculum for that many grades and students (550+). Generation Genius makes it easy, fun, and an incredible learning experience. Plus, the DIY activities are made with inexpensive materials. An additional plus is that I can do similar activities across the board. For example, I'm working on water with K through 5! All activities are grade appropriate.
