I can not believe how behind I am. Seriously. My students have just finished up a unit on Colonial America. To end the unit they had to write a speech as if they were a colonial child during that time. They had to pick their colony, where they lived (farm, plantation, town, etc), and their speech had to accurately reflect that. They somehow had to sneak in something about their economy, geography, education, daily life, and politics. They did SUCH a great job! Then...for the FUN PART!
You upload a photo, place a mouth, record your speech, and tada! Your photo speaks! So, so, so cool! Since this I've used blabberize to introduce units, tell my students important announcements when I'm sick, and review units. Currently they are working on blabberizing an animal to explain what kind of ecosystem it lives in.

Have fun! Share ideas below!
