Animated Visual Vocabulary

Animated visual vocabulary is my go to way of sharing Keynote with teachers and students. This is a great way for students to synthesize their understanding of a vocabulary word. This activity can be done in any content area and any grade level.

Students will use shapes, drawings, text, audio recording, and animations to share the meaning of a vocabulary word. Once students have done this task with vocabulary words they can apply the same skills to other concepts in class like similes, metaphors, etc.

Assign students a word or have them choose a word. Students directions and an example are attached below. I love this activity because it is little to no prep on the teachers end and focuses the work on the student end.

Thanks for sharing this workflow and visual vocabulary example! As you mentioned, this is a great way to help students build domain-specific vocabulary in any content area while also expressing themselves creatively. Definitely a win!
