3rd Graders Get Crafty For The Holidays With Pic Collage!

Today is the last day before our winter break. Our OHE students, like most students around the nation, are excited about their upcoming winter break! Our teachers are always looking for fun activities for this day. Before going any further, I want to take just a moment for a big shout out for Hilary Moorlach, my Digital Learning Specialist colleague for this fabulous idea!

First, students found 9 images of Christmas backgrounds using Google images and saved them to their camera roll. They also image searched for "bark" and saved one image to their iPad camera roll. For students with a different family tradition, they found images of their choice. 

Once they found and downloaded the images, students took a "selfie" photo.

Once these steps were done, students opened the Pic Collage App, chose a "free style" collage, and added their newly saved images to their page.  From here, students used the cutout option to edit each picture with the circle template. 

Then they arranged the circles into a tree shape, added a background and voila...a Christmas tree with their image on top!  Great digital fun!
