Book Creator with Five-Year-Olds

Introducing Book Creator to Kindergartners is quite exciting. Any time the camera app is used, kids go nuts. An introductory lesson covers the following:

  • Add a photo by using the camera (students got into pairs, swapped iPads, and photographed each other)

  • Change size of font
  • Change color of cover
