Instagram Templates for Student Activities #InstagramTemplates

Who doesn’t love Instagram these days? That is why using the concept of Instagram is one awesome way to engage students in the lesson, topic or theme.

There are many ways teachers could use “Instagram” in the classroom and turn a sleepy lesson into an exciting activity!

  • A back to school getting to know you activity. Let student introduce themselves with a short bio and some tidbits about themselves, their hobbies and interests.
  • Let students explore their identities and the world around them. Encourage students to use creativity and share thoughts, opinions and social commentary via images.
  • Let students curate photos around a hashtag related to the topic or share photos along a classwork related theme.
  • Draw a picture of an event or place in history.
  • Post regular challenges for each unit or chapter. Students can use images that meet those challenges.
  • Have students create a photo essay.
  • Draw a few pictures from a character’s perspective or draw a setting or scene from a book.
  • Challenge students to write a 6 word, 10 word, or 20 word story based on a photo.
