Using Book Creator in 2nd Grade

Second graders have been very busy learning about the life cycle of the Painted Lady Butterfly.  In Mrs. Kennedy's class, her students used the iPad to take pictures of each stage that their butterflies went through.  Not only did they take pictures of each stage, they created poems, drawings, and a scrapbook to chronicle the event.  On a beautiful, sunny day, the students released their butterflies in our courtyard.  They were so excited to watch them fly to freedom.

After the butterflies were released, the students created their own storybook using the iPad app, "Book Creator".  They learned how to use the tools and imported many of their own pictures to portray the life cycle of the Painted Lady Butterfly.

Each video has been organized in the program, "Blendspace".  Simply click on the circle in each block to watch the video.
