App Smash: Book Creator and Draw & Tell

On Friday, we used the Book Creator app to make a class eBook that can be read on each of our iPads in iBooks.  The book we made is called Owl Facts.  After learning about owls, the students each wrote a fact that they learned.  I typed these facts into the Book Creator app.  The students each illustrated their fact using the Draw & Tell app, then saved their illustration to their camera roll.  I was then able to import the illustrations from Google Drive and add them to our book in the Book Creator app.  The students then recorded their sentences.  I saved the book in Google Drive, and then was able to open the book in iBooks on each of our iPads.  (Whew!)  Sounds like a lot of work, but after the sentences were written, we were able to finish this project in about 40 minutes.   Here is a screen shot of two of the pages.
Parents, I will send you an email with the book attached.  To download the book, you will need to open on a device that supports iBooks (for example, I opened the email on my phone, clicked the attachment and "open in iBooks" and the book is now imported onto my phone).
