The subject you teach us hopefully and most likely extremely fascinating to you.  How can you communicate that to others?

Why not the simple combination of an image that represents it with a short bit of text on top, e.g. a meme image.

First, you need an image. The best choice is your own photo of something that represents this interest.

Or try to find an image that represents it. Think before you open the a web search tool. What is something used in the subject or what people do in it that make it special to you? Do not just lift any photo you can find on the web, use an open licensed photo site such as Pixabay, UnsplashPexels  to find compelling photos that are openly licensed for you to reuse.

Save that photo to your device (along with the URL for where you found it). For my example I used my own photo I store in flickr

There are many tools we can use to create meme images, for this Make, we suggest the imgflip Meme Generator or memes.com.

Skip all the common used images and click the button for Upload Your Own Image.  Then use the editing tools to add the text atop your image, including “the most fascinating thing in the world“.  Try some of the editing tools to change the color, font-size, etc. Make it POP.

Editing the meme, open “more options” for other editing tools.

Now save the image and the URL on imgflip where anyone can see it. You’ve made a meme from your own photo (or one you chose).

Now let’s share it by responding to this activity. In your response, share the source of the image and why it best represents your special subject– a blog post or a robust tweet might fit it all in.

Example for "Most Fascinating Subject in the World Meme":
