Inspiration for Your Innovation

Did you know that Flipgrid has “Innovation Leads” that provide inspiration and support for using Flipgrid in classrooms? These Innovation Leads have compiled Integration Docs that have links to documents that are organized by grade band and content area. Once in the document, there are typically three lessons created for each level and/or topic. If you find a topic that interests you and your students, you can simply add the already-created topic (i.e. lesson) to an existing grid (i.e. unit or class) that you have, and customize it as you wish.

Here are a few examples in this Integration Doc that caught my eye:

Kindergarten Literacy Example

In this example, students heard the book “The Grouchy Ladybug” and then created their own artistic ladybug. After uploading a video to Flipgrid about what makes them grouchy, teachers printed a QR code (linking to the response) to that student’s ladybug!

Middle School Science Example

Take your “moon phase” journal digital! Have students use a grid over the course of a month to make observations of the moon’s phases, embedding replies under their initial observations to see changes.

High School Social Studies Example

Students use Flipgrid as a reflective tool to compare systems of government, and use the embedded replies function to agree, question, or respectfully disagree with their classmate’s opinion about effective forms of government.

As a platform focused on creativity, I anticipate that Flipgrid will continue to expand their bank of lessons and resources for teachers.
