Fantastic Features for Pixie 3

 

Here is a video that demonstrates the different features of Pixie 3 and why it's a great tool to use in the classroom.

The video explains it all for the viewer. It demonstrates different kinds of projects that you can create and some of the tools

that you can use. Most of the buttons are self explanitory.

There's a paint brush, spray can, crayon, you can create bubbles to write text in, templates you can choose from, stickers,

a recording button if you want to narrate a story and much more!

The video explains more indepth, so please take a couple minutes and explore the world of Pixie 3 :)

Art Integration with Social Studies & Writing Lesson Example:

 

Grade: 5th 

 

Colorado Academic State Standards:

Standard 1.2 History.

 

b. Identify and describe the significant individuals and groups of Native Americans and European colonist   

before the American Revolution (DOK1-2)

 

Objective:

 

Students will gain a better understanding of various world explorers through the

use of Pixie 3. Students will be given a different explorer and become an expert through

the creation of a childrens book using Pixie 3.

 

Lesson Overview:

 

In this lesson students will work individually and will each be given an explorer to research.

As the final project students will use Pixie 3 as their technology tool to create a childrens book

to demonstrate their knowledge of their explorer. In this lesson I will require 5 pages minumum for

the book. The students will also be given a rubric to follow as their guide.

There will be art integration in this lesson because I really want their books to contain lots of

illustrations that go along with the text. Their illustrations should be creative, original and unique.

It will be about the process of the illustrations verus the final product of the illustrations. (Which I will

explain more indepth to the students)

Examples will be shown to the class.

Students will be shown Pixie 3 and the different tools that are available to them.
