Integrating art, science, and technology with ChatterPix

We recently finished up a science unit on the five senses. We used our knowledge of the five senses to help us create a talking art piece to share with our parents at tri-conferences.

We used the app ChatterPix to help create talking faces of us! ChatterPix is an app where you can take a photo of anything and make it talk. You draw a line for the mouth, record a 30 second piece and there you go!

To go along with the ending of our five senses unit, we created plasticine portraits of our faces. Students also wrote short pieces about what they had learned about the five senses.

Step 1:
Take a photo of yourself, an animal or find one on the internet.

Step 2:
Draw a line for where you want the mouth to be. Unfortunately, it only draws a straight line…so we had to just put it across the middle of the mouth.

Step 3:
Record yourself talking for 30 seconds.

Step 4:
Add extra background designs, frames, words, etc

Step 5:
Save and share! We saved ours to the camera roll and then uploaded to our Seesaw learning journals.
