We used this lesson as an introduction to using Book Creator for the 2nd graders. They made books about their school, using the camera tool in Book Creator to take photographs of important people or places around the school. We began by creating the cover of our books, adding a title and author name, and then exploring the formatting tools to change the look of the cover. A photograph of Broadwater Elementary was shared with all students to use on the cover of their books. They were each instructed to take 3 photographs, so each student had a cover + 3 additional pages. We discussed some digital citizenship rules - no photos of other students, no photos of teachers unless they asked for permission, etc.
Seesaw, AirDrop, or another method.
Once students had their photos, they were able to add text and their voice to their pages. These books then easily share to Seesaw or can be exported to the camera roll of the iPad as videos. If you're not sure how to do this, click here to see a short YouTube video by the amazing Heather Marrs.
