Comic Life Projects

Comic Life is a wonderful piece of software for which there are a great many applications. So far this year, students in grades 3 and 4 have used this software for a number of projects. Students in Grade 3 created summaries for their States report research using Comic Life. Grade 4 students used Comic life to create bartering comics. Another class of 4th graders used Comic life to create comics that document the Spanish Exploration of old California.

Friendship Quilts

Friendship Quilts were created by student in Grade 1. For the project, students worked on a template created in Microsoft Word. Students went around to each computer to type in a short message for their classmates. This project gave students plenty of opportunities to practice their typing. Students enjoyed typing messages for their classmates and especially enjoyed the comments left by their classmates.
