What a fun idea! I don't have access to our computer lab for my regular K-8 classes, but this will be great to do with some of my home schoolers. Thanks!
I love your blog... I'm excited to find you on TpT!
This project was amazing and so captivating for students!!! I did this project with my 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students and it was their favorite thing they did all quarter in any classroom. I would recommend this to anyone!
Thank you so much for creating and offering this project for free. I love it, and would have gladly paid for it. I was looking for a project for technology enrichment class and this is exactly what I wanted!
This particular project results in a still image. If you want to move and animate your images there are lots of ways to accomplish this. I was animating using Keynote on a MAC. Keynote is part of the iWorks suite. I have a tutorial on my wiki showing how to undo this. It begins here: http://fugleflicks.wikispaces.com/Project1
I have a couple tutorials online:

I would love to use this Free Make an iPod or iTunes Ad iExpress Project for my 8th grade students, however, I cannot get the files open. What do I need to to do to get the files converted to Microsoft Office Word 2003?
