Easily integrate iPads into your back to school plans with this low-prep digital glyph making and analyzing activity using the free app Doodle Buddy. Students will first fill out a survey with back to school themed survey questions. Each answer corresponds to a decorative element they will need to use in the app to make a picture – either a background, stamp, or phrase to add.
Finally students will view the class set of glyphs and analyze the responses to determine the most popular choices. Great blogging activity, math center, or beginning of year project. You could also have students make a bar graph or line plot of class data on graph paper as an extension activity.
Packet includes everything your students need to make their glyphs on the app independently:
★ 1 full color Doodle Buddy unwrAPPed reference sheet for quick use of the app.
★ 1 step-by-step direction sheet with visuals to help students independently use the app from start to finish.
★ 1 two page, six question glyph survey with approximately 4-5 picture choices per question. Questions and choices are general back to school theme.
★ 1 two-page glyph analysis sheet for tallying class totals for finding the most and least popular choices in each category.
★ 1 fill-in-the-blank set (4 pages total) to use to make your own questions and answers. Includes a fill-in-the blank analysis sheet. You know your students best and may want to tailor questions to their interests as well as local activities.
★ 1 self-assessment rubric for students to score themselves
You will need the free app Doodle Buddy. A QR code linking to the iTunes listing is included.
Since my products all utilize free web and app resources, there may be rare times that the technology does not work as planned, which may be out of my control. Please be sure to message me in the Q&A section so I can assist you before leaving feedback. I use all of the apps that I base my packets on frequently and will update products as the apps themselves update.
