On the Hunt For Text Features

Mrs. Lantz's students went on a treasure hunt in the library looking for text features found in nonfiction text.  Each student was assigned one text feature and their assignment was to photograph at least 5 examples of that feature using the camera on the iPad.  The students had a lot of fun with this assignment.

Students were also introduced to the FREE app Pic Collage as a way to display their photos.  Pic Collage allows the user to add text, background, and arrange pictures.  These collages will then become reference tools in the classroom.

All the students' collages are displayed using the FREE app, Animoto.
