The level of skills the students will develop from this lesson plan will be to construct a product to share with others. By designing something together, though working individually, the final product will display their collaborative newfound knowledge. The booklet will inspire the students to communicate with family members about what they have learned as well.
I had this idea that it would be perfect for my students to actually make an informational booklet to print and bring home during the month of November for Diabetes Awareness month. However, I experienced some issues…. Not many of the fancy apps were designed to print easily (and inexpensive)…. Maybe I was just a little too set in my ways…
Another story making application I came across is Book Creator, which seems very similar to Create Booklet I used, just not free. To cover some of the other groups within Creation & Editing Tools one can utilize various text-to-video apps where the students generate their own cartoon-based videos, such as the video I’ve previously shared HERE. (The third video).
Another very interesting application is ZooBurst where one can make digital 3D pop-up books! In this app one can upload your own images or choose from their library. Being able to upload your own images makes it much more relevant for health education, rather than many of the book creating apps where one can only utilize their pictures.
Here is a short tutorial on ZooBurst:
