Your kiddos will absoulutely LOVE this site. Imagine the possiblies for projects! Here are just a few ideas:
- Instead of requiring the traditional report, diorama, or poster plastered with pictures and information. Students can create an impressive alternative book report by creating an animated book talk, interviewing a character from the story, or re-creating an important scene in the story.

- Students can display their knowledge about a historical figure by “interviewing” the historical person of interest or an eye-witness of a historical event. ( http://ilearntechnology.com/?p=3406)
- Students can write a screen play and then transform them into animations.
- Animations are also a great way to illustrate vocabulary words and story problems in math. ( http://ilearntechnology.com/?p=3406)
