Lesson plan 1 - Nicole Chudomelka

I chose to use the iMovie app on the iPad 2 to make a book trailer for a 2012 Golden Sower nominee, Wildfire Run. I plan to use iMovie on desktop computers with my 5th graders to make book projects since when don't have iPads. I will teach/review the copyright free image sites, Picts4Learning and Morguefile to get images for this project. Other images may need to come from Google images. Discussions about online safety and how to cite its images will be reviewed. I used Soundsabounds, a district subscription, for the music. GarageBand could also be used.

Lesson plan 2 - Nicole Chudomelka

I used the Animoto app to make a quick video on solids, liquids, and gases for first grade. Even though 12 images are allowed, I was only able to use 8 or the content would have been cut off. This is a quick way to give kids something to think about before opening the textbook. While I am unable to use this app with students, based on district policy, it would be a great tool for teachers.
