Comparing the Good and the Bad

I read my class Ready for Anything by Keiko Kasza and we compared Duck and Raccoon's outlook on a picnic. Pairs of students chose a place that  could be visited, such as a swimming pool, the woods, or a playground. They created 2 pictures in DrawingPad, one showing the positives of visiting that place and the other showing the negatives of visiting that place, following Duck and Raccoon's "what if" format. They imported the pictures into StripDesigner and wrote a caption for each. After about 100 days of school and bi-monthly projects combining DrawingPad and StripDesigner, all 23 of my students can complete the steps on their own and feel comfortable using both apps.
