I tried out blabberize in my classroom a couple of months ago. I had made “blabbers” several times, but had never had an idea of how to use them in the classroom. Students were researching planets in reading class. The other 5th grade teachers were having them write a paper. I wanted to try something a little different. So we blabberized them!
First each student was assigned a planet and had to research it. Then they had to write a script speaking as though the were the planet. They were required to give a certain number of facts in the script (although I can’t remember how many I said now).
Each student found an image of their assigned planet on Schools Clipart (a site paid for by our district). They then read the script into blabberize using microphones.
The students loved the project and used much more creativity than I would have thought. I would love to use blabberize again, have you used it in your classroom? Do you have other ideas?
