SMART Board and Document Camera lesson ideas

A while back, a teacher asked me for suggestions and ideas in using the SMART Board and Document Camera together within the classroom.  Thought I would share them with you.  These are perfect for all grade levels!

Take pictures of

  1. Classroom routines and embed the pics in Notebook.  Have the students arrange the pics in order.
  2. Items in the classroom and have the students label them.
  3. Various plants outside and identify plant parts.  Label them on the SMART Board.  Convert the handwriting to text and then use reveal objects or ‘whiteout’ to hide the words as a review.
  4. Class trips and then make a class album with comments.
  5. Students and create a seating order in the classroom.
  6. Group leaders and put them on the image dice to spin for who goes first etc.
  7. A bean plant growing in intervals of several hours to show progress
  8. Science experiments to show process
  9. Arms, legs, eyes, noses, hair etc. so that ESL students can label them and learn the language
  10. Lunches to categorize the contents in food groups.  Follow up with which food group is  most represented and why.
  11. Traffic in front of the school.  Put resulting data into a table in Notebook to show which car color/make is most popular.
  12. Items from a student speech into Notebook to make the speeches more dynamic.

The ideas are limited by yours and your students imaginations!

Happy Learning!
