Rootstown Second Graders Explore Campus to Create Digital Adjective Collages

The Rootstown second graders took advantage of this morning’s Spring-like weather to do an outdoor activity to support their literacy work with adjectives.  The class took a photo walk on the Kent State campus using the camera feature on the iPads. Prior to the photo walk, Mrs. Stackpole reviewed with students the concept of adjectives as descriptive words and then gave students the assignment to capture photos that could be used for writing captions with adjectives.

Back in the AT&T Classroom, Mrs. Stackpole introduced the students to PicCollage to create a collage of their photos. PicCollage is a free app for creating scenes and collages with photos taken with a mobile phone or tablet. The app’s platform offers access to a tremendous gallery of backgrounds, stickers and customizable fonts for creating photo projects.
