Stick Around App Holiday Activity

We are using Nearpod this week to learn about the way Christmas is celebrated in different countries as well as learning about Ramadan, Hanukkah, Diwali, and Kwanzaa.

After reading and discussing Christmas traditions in Mexico and Germany I asked pairs of students to create a venn diagram puzzle in Stick Around.  This was their first time creating a puzzle, although they have used Stick Around a few times to solve puzzles that I created. It was easy for me to tell based on the information students wrote/drew on the stickers how well they understood what we had read about.  They loved creating a puzzle and were all hoping to stump their classmates (no luck!) I hope we'll have time later in the week to create more puzzles as we study the other holidays.
