You Oughta Know March Blog Hop

Spring is in the air. Linking up with Buzzing with Mrs. McClain for the March You Oughta Know Blog Hop.

Looking for a way to engage students?! How about adding anaglyph 3D images into your lessons? Doing a study on planets? Embed some 3D images into the lesson. When you look at the image below, it looks like an ordinary image with some different coloration in spots.

So where is the 3D you ask? How do you make it a 3D experience? Students will need paper 3D glasses. These glasses can be purchased online. You can shop around for reasonable prices. When students view the image above with 3D glasses, Earth "pops" out of the page. So cool!

Where do you find 3D images? You can search the Internet by typing in: anaglyph images and videos. Anaglyph images can only be seen as 3D images if these glasses are worn.

If you create review games for students using PowerPoint, correct answers can be rewarded with 3D images. Pick a theme of images and hook students into reviewing. Students will work really hard to get correct answers in anticipation of the next 3D image that will pop up.
It is exciting! It is engaging! What are some strategies you use to engage students?

  1. This is awesome! Plus, the kiddies will definitely love wearing the glasses.

  2. THis is such a great idea. Just finished Teach Like a Pirate, which is all about engaging students. My goals this week are to get outside and let them move around my room.

  3. Loved that book. Teach Like a Pirate was so inspiring! Thanks for stopping by Pam's Place!

  4. I think my kids would really get a kick out of utilizing 3D images. They enjoy anything that can make learning not only more exciting but meaningful as well. Thanks for sharing yet another great idea and being a part of the blog hop. Hope to have you around for more :-)
