Lippman First Graders Create Simple Machine Collages

This morning in the AT&T Classroom the Lippman first graders continued their work with the LEGO WeDo Robotics system, building from yesterday’s work with gears and today exploring the use of pulleys as a simple machine. As they are working with the LEGOs the students have been capturing digital photos of their builds to create a digital photo collage documenting the progression of their work. The first graders are using the PicCollage app on the iPads to create their collages. PicCollage is a free app that can be used to create collages of photos taken with your iOS device. The students have been exploring various features of the app that can be used to add text, backgrounds, and stickers. As the students work within the various app features they are gaining experience with specific elements of visual and spatial design while creating a very personal and unique project. The Pic Collage app can be downloaded for free from Google Play and itunes.
