I enjoy twitter, but I loooove trig. The perfect world is combining the two! So when we finished it up this year I gave them the assignment to tweet me. They had to include #trigis ("trig is") and then give their description/definition of trig. And, of course, they had to keep it <= 140 characters. (Props went to the people who were the closest - I made them count!)
It turned out to be a lot of fun. The kids were amazed at how much they had to think to get their description in 140 characters instead of some long rambling description. And oh, the hash tags that they included. I put all of their entries together on some slides so they could check out each other's work.
Without further ado, here's #myFavFriday for this week.
The only thing I might do differently for next year is give them a pre-made template to work from with 140 little boxes. I think it would help us all out.
I was hoping that a bunch of the kids would actually tweet their replies, but only a few did. Guess they didn't want to show their friends how nerdy they are :)
