1. Fifth graders used this template to help them create their self-portrait flying on the iPads using Sketchbook Express. They deleted the template and emailed just their final drawings. See the gallery of images here.
2. Students were inspired by the story, Tar Beach, by Faith Ringgold while creating a landscape that was to show depth, overlapping, and a high horizon line. See the gallery of images here.
3. Students used Keynote to animate the digital figure and landscapes. I created a tutorial showing all the steps to help them. View it below or here. I put screenshots from their animation movie on artsoniain this gallery.
4. Students helped sing and compose an original flying song using garageband on the iPad (using the built-in instruments) and the desktop version to add voices.
