Nearpod is a popular way to run virtual and in-person lessons. With this tool, teachers can provide quizzes, polls, share videos, create interactive boards, and more. But often it’s a challenge to set up new lessons, even using this convenient tool.
That’s where Nearpod’s Lessons Library comes in handy. Just browse through dozens of pre-made lessons, all easy to find with powerful search and filtering capabilities. Let’s take a look at some pre-made Nearpod lessons across subject areas that will help engage your young learners.
But First, What Exactly Is Nearpod?
Nearpod is an interactive student engagement platform that lets you turn your existing resources (Google Slides, PowerPoints, and .PDFs) or their pre-made lessons into transformational learning experiences. Once students access these resources, you’ll receive formative assessment data from every student in real-time.
The Silver version of Nearpod is completely free (and, according to the company, always will be.) That offers up to 100MB in storage and the ability to have up to 40 students per session. The Gold plan is just $120/year and it provides for greater storage, more student access, and the use of Immersive Reading for Google Slides.
Engaging Kindergarten Students
These Nearpod lessons are designed specifically for kindergarteners.
- ELA: Dive into vital literacy skills with lessons like The Letter D, Kindergarten ELA Practice and Review, Phonetic Spelling (with audio), or Reading Foundational Skills (with 10 lessons!).
- Math, Science, and STEAM: Make connections in math and science. Check out Nearpod lessons like Database Search, assess early math skill with Comparing Measurable Attributes, or get interactive with the Making Ten: Rainbow Math activity.
- Social Studies: Help young students understand Wants and Needs, Natural Resources (and how we manage them), or that vital and often misunderstood tool, the map.
