This week I showed my students 2 videos from The Literacy Shed (www.literacyshed.com). First they watched "The Book of Butterflies" and wrote why a butterfly book would be terrific but a lion book would cause problems. I left app choice up to them but most students chose StripDesign, My Story, or Tellagami.
Next, they watched "The Bridge". We tied this in with several of our Project Cornerstone lessons. I had them interview each other using the camera app (so no samples shown) to determine why the smaller animals were successful in crossing the bridge while the larger animals were not.
