I'm Seeing RED!



Everyone likes secrets!! The Red Lens Reveal (Red Blue Reveal) strategy creates a unique opportunity for students to be engaged and entertained by SECRET MESSAGES!

How Does it Work?

By creating a blue (cyan) section of text masked by red, yellow and pink, hidden words can be revealed using a transparent red lens.  Simply hold a lens over the a masked image, and the hidden text shows through.  This strategy works when printed in color, but can also work when displayed on a tablet or PC screen!



Simply edit the Google Slide and add your own 
SECRET MESSAGE!  Students will be THRILLED to discover what hides beneath.

This FREE app will create a customized, downloadable red reveal hidden text.  
It can be a bit glitchy and the resulting image is small and allows for a limited amount of 
text to be hidden, but I've had some success using this app.
