Every year Mr. Elliott has his students create a model of a cell. This year I had our students take photographs of their cell models with either cell phones, iPads or cameras. We used the photos to create digital projects supporting the lessons about cells and organelles that they had learned in Science class.
Hannah used the picstitch app on her phone to build a collage of cells.
We learned to extract the cell image to make our cell into clipart using Pixlar Editor, a Google App.
With the extracted images we collaborated on a presentation in Google Docs where each student worked on their own slide in the same powerpoint. 1st Period Cell Project
And finally we imported the powerpoint into Prezi to experience another tool and how to use it.
We will continue to use content from other classes to explore programs and applications such as Glogster, Scratch, Kidblog and more!
