Teacher Notes (not visible to students)

This is an app smashing activity, so you will need to teach the students how to use the Draw and Tell app to create a picture. Also, they will need to learn how to save the picture to their camera roll. Note: Students CAN record their voice in Draw and Tell, and move the characters to make a video of the picture, but they won't have the pointer tool to point to the parts of the picture. Either way is an option for retelling.
