Memes are a great way to use humor in the classroom. By taking humorous image, video, piece of text,students can express how they are feeling and so can teachers! I always have my students introduce themselves on the first day of school by creating a meme and bringing it in. Memegenerator.org or memegenerator.net are two great sites and will allow students to QUICKLY create a meme to share with the class. When I teach about historical figures I have students make a meme to share with the class – this way they remember the icon! Here are some of the memes I have created and ones from my students over the years. Let me know which ones you like the best!
