Activities for all ages, CCSS-ready lesson plans, and more.
Plastered all over the Internet, memes can make us laugh or think. Now they can even teach. Provide your students with a variety of images showing animals, kids, or faces displaying various emotions. They can then write their own memes by adding captions. It’s a great activity to build inferencing skills, and it will help students understand and use visual context clues. Plus, they will love the challenge of sharing their humorous sides in just a sentence or two! Post your student-made memes on a board for a lively display, or share digital versions on a class website.
