1st and 2nd grade describe pumpkins or zombies

Students used the Make a Zombie and Make a Pumpkin apps this week in a descriptive activity. Half the class was using the iPads for a different assignment, so the pumpkin/zombie activity was completed on iTouches.

Students created a pumpkin or zombie of their choice using the free Parents Magazine app. They took a screenshot and imported to Doodle Buddy. Finally, they added 3 adjectives describing their picture. It would probably have been better with more screen space to write, but overall a fun Halloween activity.

As an added non-electronic activity they paired up and on the fly created a quick oral story about their pumpkin or zombie character, incorporating the description.
