Activity Overview

Learning a new program can be difficult, but by creating a Summer Scrapbook, students can learn while having fun! They will browse or search for different artwork and get to know how to manipulate images while teaching others about what they did over summer vacation.

Using the template provided, students will create a scrapbook of pictures about their summer using Storyboard That art. The template does not have a section for writing, but teachers can easily add one in or have the students write about their scrapbook page on a separate piece of paper if desired. Students will enjoy sharing their experiences with their peers, and should be encouraged to take turns presenting their scrapbook to their classmates.
