As an art teacher who loves to infuse technology, I thought I would add STEAM to this STEM lesson by creating fairy evidence via a drawing/animation app on the iPad.
If you decide to draw your fairy in a drawing app instead of DOINK, you would need to save it as a PNG with a transparent background. There is a very convenient app for this called Superimpose (.99) I have been playing with this app to think of new uses for the other tools and stumbled on this idea. I made a silhouette of my fairy drawing by inverting the masking tool and layering black as a background. That sounds hard, but it was just a few clicks, really. I finished off the image in SketchbookX where I added a phrase ala the old iTunes/iPod ads from apple.
