1st Grade – Getting to Know Characters

img_08121st Grade students used the Popplet app on their iPads to describe the character traits of a chosen storybook character. Their teacher modeled the activity by mirroring an iPad to the Smart Board with AirServer. Students then used the Camera app to take a picture of their character and saved it to the camera roll. They created a  Popplet (a graphic organizer) which showed the traits of that character by importing the photo and typing in the traits. img_0793The Popplets were saved to the camera roll and the students used AirPlay and AirDrop to send it to the teacher’s iPad. Prior to beginning this lesson, students spent time learning how to use the app and they created Popplets all about themselves. This gave them the opportunity to have fun learning the tools and exploring character traits to prepare for the project. Click here for more details about this project.
