This week-long project taps into students' love of art, creativity, and technology! Students research and come up with 20 different invertebrates within their assigned phylum (I use arthropods, echinoderms, and mollusks only). They create an app logo for each one and then pair up with a partner and create a "text" conversation that their animals might have. Very cute, very engaged learning. I let my students use the computers and iPads for picture and characteristic ideas. Enjoy!
