Collaborating with Fox Hill’s art teacher, Mr. Scarpulla, I had 1st grade students bring their iPads to art class to show us what they have learned in their Earth and space science studies.
Students were asked to share their knowledge by drawing their favorite planet in the “Drawing Pad” app on their iPads.
Students showed great skill and enthusiasm in identifying their favorite planet, planets next to that planet, and some of the physical features of the planets, such as their color, size and attributes (i.e. rings, rocks, clouds).
Furthermore, students showcased their ever increasing technology skills by figuring out how to use and array of different tools in the app (paint brushes, crayons, markers and brush sizes) and sharing their drawings to their camera roll so they could be printed.
