French Word Search – Find the Opposites – Google Jamboard and PDF
Thursday, February 25, 2021
Last January, while looking for ways to create a digital word search for my students, I decided to finally jump on board the Google Jamboard train. It really is such a handy tool and, as it is a part of the Google for Education Suite, it makes the most sense for those of us who use Google Classroom, since you can assign Jamboards and make copies for students just as you would using Docs, Sheets or Slides. I decided to use a French word search on opposites that I had made a while back and use it as the background of the Jamboard so that students can use the highlighter or paintbrush to highlight the words they found. They can also use the pen or marker to write the words next to their opposite if they are using a mobile device or a laptop with a touch screen, or they could alternatively use the text box to type their answer.
Since I use les contraires a lot as part of the AIM Method, I decided to create a second version and add a second page to my Jamboard. I just love creating my own complementary materials, such as interactive SMART Notebook activities, DIY magnetic words and mini books, to further engage my students but given the current times, it’s nice to have another tool such as Jamboard to create digital and interactive activities that can be used virtually or even assigned as a homework activity for extra practice.
