Every year our fifth graders investigate explorers. They use a variety of resources (including GetEpic!) to research and, in the past, they have done things like created slides, written essays, or created posters.
This year, we're changing it up a bit.
This year, we're using BookCreator.
I love the ease of Book Creator - from the log-in process (thank you Google integration!) to the drag and drop features. Students can add video, audio, and even have the book read to you, creating an interactive e-book. It's a simple platform, yet it provides the opportunity to make books that are quite sophisticated. It's easy enough for the lower grades to use, yet robust enough for middle school use and beyond.
The free version gives you one library that can have up to 40 books in it. Paid versions offer the ability to have multiple libraries with up to 60 books in each.
We've done a few different projects with BookCreator - it's quickly become a favorite tool!
