One of my students named Yessica found this free app that students can use to overlap two images.
You can choose a background such as places, animals, landscapes or you can upload your own image. Then simply take a new photo or upload a new photo and follow the simple instructions on how to "Cut" and then "Paste" into your background.
I love how tactile this app is. You can use two fingers to rotate your image.
Free, but it has ads.
$1.99 with no adds.
I created the following example in less than 2 minutes.
Microsoft Paint is an easy to use photo editing software and the best part is that it is FREE. You can open images with Paint and edit them. I created the image to the left by uploading two images into two different sessions of Paint and then tracing the lion head from one, copying, and pasting it into the other one.
These were the three tools I used:
Netflix is hands down the best way to show videos in my classroom.
As we watched scenes from the documentary Birdmen to understand more about air pressure and flight, one of my students made the comment, "They show videos on Netflix?" Students often watch Youtube to find videos of amazing feats by athletes or other short snippets and refer to these as videos as opposed to "movies". I loved that we could have the discussion in my classroom that yes, there are other visual media besides "videos" on Youtube and that Netflix has more than just movies. These are documentaries and they have documentaries about EVERYTHING.
