When you combine the visual aspects of scrapbooking with the power of commenting in blogs, you get a ScrapBlog! Although you could probably use any blogging software to share your visuals, the great thing about ScrapBlog is that it uses free online software for making the scrapbook pages. This free resource is very new, so it's a good idea to print your scrapblog in case anything happens to the website in the future.
- Create a ScrapBlog for a book. Include photographs and other visuals that represent how you visualize the book. If they were going to create a movie based on this book, what locations, costumes, actors, and other information would you "pitch" to a potential movie producer? Then, ask your peers if they agree or disagree with your choices? What would they recommend?
- Create a ScrapBlog to compare an historical time period with today. Read Bread and Roses, Too by Katherine Paterson. Explore lesson ideas at Mass Moments, Teaching Tolerance. Open the PowerPoint starter called Bread and Roses, Too. (PPT). Create your own scrapbook. Or, share online with Scrapblog or print it out.
