Picture Book Projects

Digital technology is fantastic but often it is important to blend learning and provide students with opportunities to enjoy print sources as well. As publishing companies search for ways to keep up with electronic books, they are investing money into artistic elements and techniques for bound editions of literature. This project blends the beauty and wonder of a picture book with critical thinking and digital communication skills.

Students will select a picture book, read and examine the text and illustrations, conduct research specifically about picture books as well as some additional research about author/illustrator. After investigating and exploring a picture book, students will organize and share their findings with others by producing a digital presentation. This project addresses multiple ELA and ISTE standards in the areas of content, research, organization, conventions, and presentation.
