After some students completed a Social Studies unit on the Northeast Region of the United States, the classroom teacher and I wanted them to pick five locations to “visit”. Using a few apps: Comic Life, Green Screen, LayerPic HD, and the built-in Maps app; students were able to create a one page comic about their trip. They included information about each location which describes the importance of the place. They also selected a vehicle to travel in and created a map, using the vehicle as a symbol for where they stopped. Below is my example, included are links to the apps as well as the planning packet used:
