This afternoon during their social studies block in the AT&T Classroom, the Lakeview fifth graderswere introduced to Popplet, a free tool that can be used to create diagrams and concept maps. The app allows you to build a diagram or outline by creating popples in various shapes and sizes to represent individual facts or details related to a specific concept. Students can also add text, drawing, or images to each popple. Students are able to draw their own image or use the online search function within the app to find and insert a photo or image from the web. This afternoon the fifth graders used Popplet to create concept maps to organize facts they are learning in social studies regarding civilizations.
