Use a free iPad app to design an avatar then print onto paper, assemble with tape or glue and use in 5 included activities! Avatar prints on regular printers onto regular printer paper!
Easily integrate iPad® mobile digital devices into your classroom with this low prep and creative iPad Paper Craft! Students will use the included planning and direction sheets to design an avatar on the free iPad app Paper Chibi then print their Chibi, cut it out, and glue it together to make a 3D model.
What do students use their cute paper Chibi for?
Similar to a Japanese Kokeshi doll, Chibi’s hollow bodies can be used to store a note. Before gluing the head closed, students can insert their note written on the included “brain” or “cloud” shaped thought paper. This activity also includes 5 suggestions for what to write & corresponding planners to help students complete the task: Making a goal for the new school year, Filling someone’s bucket, Writing a wish, Writing a hope or dream for the school year (for classes using Responsive Classroom), and Writing & creating a surprise QR audio message.
Packet includes everything your students need to complete the project using the app independently:
★ 3 Visual step-by-step student direction pages for using the free app Paper Chibi
★ 1 Visual step-by-step student direction pages for making an audio QR code
★ 3 Visual step-by-step student direction pages for printing & sharing options – choose the one that best fits your needs and equipment.
★ 1 blank set of message paper brains/thought clouds to write notes to put inside the Chibi.
★ Photographs showing how to assemble the Chibi’s.
★ Clearly written teacher direction pages explaining how to facilitate the project.
Print out the activity pages and distribute to your students or leave in an iPad center. Chibi’s will need to be printed – color or black and white is fine – either from the iPad, via emailing the teacher, or uploading to file share site (like Google Drive™ online storage service or Dropbox) then printed from a PC or laptop. Directions are included for all 3 printing options. Students will need gluesticks to put together printed Chibi’s.
You will need the free app Paper Chibi. A QR code to download the app from the App Store® online store is included in this packet. The free version of the app includes ALL editing options!
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.
