Multimedia Thanksgiving Turkeys

A couple of days ago my sister posted a picture on Facebook that inspired this post. Her picture was of my nieces adding items to their "thankful posters." Daily, throughout the month leading up to Thanksgiving she has my nieces write down the things for which they are thankful. Of course, when I saw this I thought that it was a perfect fit for a ThingLink project.

ThingLink makes it easy to create interactive, multimedia images. Upload a picture of a turkey and you or your students can add interactive pins to it. Those pins can include text, images, audio, or video. You can go back and edit your image at any time. So in that way you could have students add one new item to their images every day or two. Images can be emailed and or embedded into blog posts so that your students' parents can see them.

The videos embedded below demonstrate how to use ThingLink.

ThingLink Edu provides teachers with tools to manage students' accounts. Students don't need email addresses in order to use ThingLink.
