Electronic Book Reports-Setting the stage

We will continue this week with our electronic book reports with a focus on setting this time.

1. Museum Box – Students can build a collection of things that represent a character, a setting, and/or plot. Very fun and interactive. You can use the things that are on the site already or upload your photos. It does require a user name and password.

2. Magazine Cover: Big huge labs has several great digital projects for students. This link will take you to the page to create a magazine cover. Students should have a template before going to this site as you cannot save to the site. Upload a picture and then add in the text. Font size and color can be change. These can be printed out but not saved.

3. Photo Time Lines – There are three photo timelines that you could use for history projects or projects for a book report. Photos can be uploaded and put into a time line. It reminds me of Animoto but it is linear. Those three sites are: VuVox, Tiki-Toki, and Capzules. Use the one that is most useful to you. All three sites do require you to create a user name and password since you will be uploading pictures to their site.

4. The Newspaper Generator: The link will take you to a site that will help you create a newspaper article. There is a caution to not use real newspaper titles. The image can be downloaded and then put on a website or printed out.

I hope you can find something you can use in this newsletter. If you do, please make a comment.
