Instructional Ideas

  1. When teaching about Rodin, teachers can let students explore the videos in this app. For each video, students can record the name of the sculpture, summarize the video in a sentence, and paraphrase three facts they learned from the video. Students can then share the facts they learned from each video in small groups, with a partner, or with the whole class.
  2. When completing a research project about sculptures or Rodin, students can use this app to learn about those topics. Students will have to ensure they cite this app in their research.
  3. After creating sculptures and viewing videos in this app, students can create a video about their sculpture that models the ones included in this video. Students can use a Movie Maker app to record and edit their videos.
