Check out the sites below for fun, creative projects that you can utilize with your students.  Some of these just take minutes to do and others can be more extensive projects. 

Blabberize- I love Blabberize!  You can use existing pictures or your own picture and make them talk (blabber).  This is a great alternative to presentations/speeches/foreign language assignments etc.  And it is really funny!

Pic Lits- This site allows users to create stories, poetry, short phrases etc. that are based on a picture.  Users can choose from a list of words (nouns/verbs/adjectives) or type in their own words.  This would be a great bell ringer or creative writing assignment. 

Twister and FakeBook- Students can create fake Twitter accounts and fake Facebook accounts based on a fictional or historical character.  I have seen this used with the characters from The Great Gatsby for example. 

Museum Box-
This site provides the tools for you to build up an argument or description of an event, person or historical period by placing items in a virtual box.

-Dipity is a free digital timeline website. Users can create, share, embed and collaborate on interactive, visually engaging timelines that integrate video, audio, images, text, links, social media, location and timestamps.

Cacoo is a user friendly online drawing tool that allows you to create a variety of diagrams. Multiple users can share and edit one diagram simultaneously. Changes are shown on the sharers screen in real time. Collaboration will be more creative and productive as team members can plan and review cooperatively. Create your own infographics.

Smore- Create beautiful online flyers and publish them instantly.

Know the News- Compare worldwide coverage of breaking news, edit clips together and create your own commentary.

Trading Card Creator-
The Trading Card tool gives students an alternative way to demonstrate their literacy knowledge and skill when writing about popular culture texts or real world examples. This interactive allows students to create their own trading card about a real or fictional person, place, object, event, or abstract concept.
