Our second graders created fabulous collage-style bugs in art class with Mrs. Singleton. In library class, students researched facts about their bugs using the Bug Books series by Heinemann Library. They used the iPad app, Shadow Puppet EDU to record their information and show their collage work. Students had to work together during the research and recording phase which was a challenge for some groups, but working through those challenges proved to be the best learning experience. I love how this project came out. The app captures the patterned detail of their artwork well. The recording was easy to do and personalizes the work with their own voice. I highly recommend the Shadow Puppet EDU app for digitally showcasing student visual and written work. See our bug slideshows below.
