This week the fifth graders used our new Apple Pencils and the free Sketches School app to design their own emojis! It was an easy lesson to introduce them to drawing with the Apple Pencil (or a stylus – we don’t have enough to go around). This lesson was taken from Apple’s new Everyone Can Create curriculum. Here is the link to the Drawing multitouch book which is available for free download:
Here’s a short Clips video showing some of the emojis and the students in action:
I heard students talking about how they much they enjoyed this activity. One girl even mentioned that she now wanted to use her birthday money to get an Apple Pencil!
