Sixth Graders publish their own books with Book Creator

Middle School history teacher Wynn Richards empowered students to make their own books on their iPads:

Sixth graders in my classes created myths while studying ancient Greece. They made them in groups, which added an interesting element. Each group found pictures that illustrated their myths, then emailed everything to me. I have the Book Creator app on my iPad and I imported the myths and pictures to create a class book. At first it took time to estimate how much text could fit on each page, because the text does not flow from page to page. I soon got the hang of it and it was fun to put the book all together!

Please check out the two books we made (shared in PDF format):

6-1 Greek Myths
