A teacher’s guide for the Tags lesson type in Snowflake MultiTeach®



What it does

Tags is a lesson type that provides students a way to identify and label items in a diagram.

Students drag tags representing items from a list of words located on the right side of the screen to the corresponding location on a target diagram or photo on the left side of the screen.

The target photo or diagram can be zoomed by pinching, or can be dragged around on the screen.

Target and background photos/diagrams are easily imported into the lesson.
