Bringing the Revolutionary War to Life with iPads! (ChatterPix)

Our district recently added some very exciting technology to our repertoire!  iPADS!!!  Each school has 15 new iPads to enhance the learning in our classrooms. Here in Fifth grade, we were so excited to get our students’ hands on these! 

We have been studying the Revolutionary War in social studies, and have been learning the research process to use in our informational writing. Our instructional coach, Mrs. Counihan, suggested that we use the app, “ChatterPix” to demonstrate the learning that occurred thus far. This is a student-friendly and engaging app to use.  Once we had shown the students this app, they couldn't wait to try it!

Each student was expected to choose one topic of the Revolutionary War that interested them.  They were required to find new information about this topic and then present it using, “ChatterPix!”  You would never know this was the first time the students used iPads in the classroom because their presentations were outstanding.
