Going on a Shape Hunt
Students showed what they had learned about plane and solid
figures by going a shape hunt with iPads. They photographed all kinds of figures, added these to the Book Creator app, recorded narration, saved as a video, and uploaded to their blogs.
Snow Pals: Glyphs and Haiku Poems
The second graders have used Microsoft's Paint program and the Book Creator app to create class books of Snow Pals. The drawings were created based on how students answered a set of questions (a glyph). Next, the children wrote a Haiku poem about their snow pal. The final step was to add illustrations and voice recording to the app.
Visit the Snow Pals Glyphs blog post to read more about the process AND to access the links to download the ePub books. The books have also been made into videos and you will find those links on the post as well.
