Over the past 2 weeks, the fourth graders have been learning about creating sketchnotes as a way of documenting their learning. They used the Flipink app to make visual notes about a chapter in their science book about predicting weather.
Students needed to refer to their book to find key words and ideas and to find ways to represent them using images.
Students demonstrated lots of detailed work using the stylus and text tools.
Here are a few examples of their sketchnotes:
Flipink is one of my favorite drawing apps and works especially great for sketchnotes. Currently it is available on iTunes for $1.99 US.
Here is a link to the video and student resources we used to introduce this unit.
