Step 1: Draw a Monster Using the Directed Drawing Template

First, have students draw a monster using the directed drawing template. If you have younger students you may want to do this step as a whole class. Be sure to model each step for students.

Step 3: Use the ChatterPix App to Take a Photo of Your Monster

In order to have students animate their monster, first have them take a picture of their drawing using the ChatterPix App. Then have them draw a line showing where the mouth of their monster is located.

Step 4: Record Your Monster Story

Next have students record their story or a summary of their story. Be aware that the ChatterPix App only allows for a 30 second recording.

Once students have their recording they can decorate their video by adding stickers and a frame. Students can also type text on their video. We recommend having students type their name on the video.
