Create an Animation about Weathering

Use the iPad app AbcYa Animate to create an animation about the three parts of weathering. Here is a video a sixth grade student made using Keynote showing the same processes:

Weathering: the breaking down and wearing away of rocks

Erosion: wind and water carrying away bits of rock

Deposition: material eroded by water, wind or ice are dropped in a new place

Watch this BrainPop video on Weathering and Erosion.

See if you can put all the stages of weathering into one animation.

If you forgot how to use AbcYa Animate, here is a demonstration video:

Use the iPad app AbcYa Animate to create a story or show a process. You can animate a scene in a book you like, bring to life a scientific process (the food chain or a life cycle) or make your own story.

Make an End-of-Year E-book

Get an iPad, open up the Book Creator app and write about some of your favorite people during this school year. You can include classmates, teachers and other staff members you want to remember. When you’ve finished writing the text, check with your teacher to find out the best time to get the pictures you need.

The following directions show you what to do if you want to put it on a tablet and read it as an ebook.
