The first activity I created when they placed the iPad in my hands was a vocabulary drag and drop game. I did import the table as a graphic and placed it in Pages but I don’t think you would have to.
The Pages file is attached, but it’s very easy to make your own.
Another project I developed this year used the Comic Life app. The app is very easy to use and as you can see from the examples posted, students can use any type of image they want and still make a great comic. The students’ task was to write a word problem in comic form. They had to set up the situation, create an equation and solve it, all within comic.
The first comic is the example I gave the students, followed by the scoring guide, also created in Comic Life.
The next two examples are student projects. While they may not have scored full points on these comics, they still put some effort into it and clearly enjoyed the experience.
