First, students learned about various habitats in their classroom. Then, they came down to the technology lab and chose one animal in their assigned habitat. Their assignment was to learn a few facts about their animal and draw a picture.
Armed with their information, students returned to their classrooms where their teachers collected the facts and brainstormed elements of a poem with them. Together, the class wrote a poem about Dr. Suess visiting different habitats.
Next, students illustrated the pages. Mrs. Dingus assembled all their pages and put them into a book. Students practiced their page's rhyme and meter, then Mrs. Dingus and I recorded them reading in the hallway.
FInally, I spliced their videos together into one movie and created a trigger image from the book's cover. Now, anyone who scans the book with the Layar app will see the students' movie!
