Creating a Shout It Out! activity

SMART Notebook Plus feature. Subscription required.

Create a class-wide brainstorming session where students contribute text or images to a page that appears on the classroom display.

This activity facilitates classroom discussion and helps the class generate and organize ideas.

Here is an example of a Shout it Out! activity where students share interesting facts about different animals as an icebreaker at the beginning of a biology lesson.

This example was designed as an open brainstorming session, but you can also define categories if you have a more structured activity in mind.
