Looking for a fun way to integrate technology and reach the higher level in the SAM-R model (Blooms Taxonomy for technology)? This is a set of directions that are broken down step by step with images for BOTH teachers AND students to follow. We used the app called ComicLife. Students used this app on the iPad. We used it during our Weather Unit in 2nd grade. Students had to select pictures for the four storms (hurricane, blizzard, tornado, thunderstorm) and the three weather tools (thermometer, rain gauge, wind/weather vane). Students had to label each picture, and write a short sentence describing the storm.
Included are directions to save images to your ipad and how to use Comic Life. The directions are simple enough to leave at a center for your students to follow. Student created examples are included.
