Social Studies Slogans: Make Your Own Memes

14 Nov

I chose this slogan because it contains domain specific vocabulary and demonstrates the courage of George Washington and the faith he had in his troops.

You’ve seen them in emails, on Facebook, even the Today Show features memes that have gone viral.  Students can create their own memes using Haiku Deck on their iPads.

Follow these steps:

  • Create a new presentation and choose a theme
  • Add an image from your camera roll to set as the background
  • Add your slogan and format the text so it works with your image

Check out my common core aligned lesson plan using this app in the classroom!

    What a fantastic idea. I downloaded this app awhile back and k we it was cool but couldn’t figure out how to use it in class. After seeing your lesson, we’re going to create memes that go along with our Project Based Learning unit on health. Kudos.

    Is there an online version of this app? We use laptop computers in the classroom, but I’d love to make historical memes with my students. Thanks!

    Hi Kari,
    You could definitely do something similar by placing an image on a PowerPoint slide.
