I’m Lucky Because…

Here’s a fun project you can do on St. Patrick’s Day! I had my students finish this sentence, “I am lucky because…” and they drew a picture to go along with it. This would be a great project for any grade level, and the complexity could vary based on the grade level with whom you were working. For example, I did this project with second graders. We used a program for the Mac called KidPix, but this project could easily be completed on an iPad using a program such as Draw and Tell, Drawing Pad, Explain Everything, Draw Free, Doodle Buddy, etc. Once students have completed their work, you need one device to collect all of their work to create one video to share. I have students use Airdrop to transfer their work, which they save to their camera roll (iPad) or from their desktop (Mac). From there, I create a video in iMovie because it makes sharing a class project very easy. Just post the finished video to YouTube or Vimeo and email the link out to your audience. I think a nice feature would have been to add a voiceover to each child’s piece. Hope you enjoy!
