Here is one of my many animated introductory lessons. Students love my Bitmoji. My videos are great to increase student engagement, motivation and enhance learning.

SnapChat Filter Selfies

Students loved creating self portraits using snap chat filters. Move over Instagram we all know Snapchat has the best fun filters.

To make our selfies even more real we mounted them on a cell phone drawing.

This lesson is inspired by Cassie Stephens she has a tutorial on her blog as well as her YouTube channel. https://cassiestephens.blogspot.com

I allowed my students to chose their filter and animal. I love the finished productπŸ€³πŸΎβ£οΈπŸŽ¨πŸ˜πŸ“ΈπŸ“²
