The Wormworld Saga is an episodic graphic novel that follows the life and adventures of Jonas Berg, who at a young age enters a parallel world through a forgotten painting in a dusty attic. From that day on, Jonas’s fate is linked to this fantastic and mysterious place, in which he will visit indescribable wonders, experience true friendship, face insurmountable evil and discover his family legacy. The Wormworld Saga has been available on the web for a while, but it’s now available as a free iPad app that offers features not available on the web version, including exclusive news and content, and the ability to share favorite scenes via Facebook, Twitter or email.
Popplet is an easy-to-use graphic organizing tool that lets even young children organize ideas by drawing, writing or importing imagery. This free app for the iPad can be used to create diagrams, flowcharts, mind maps, webs and outlines. For example, students can select the most important events from a story or historical event and then present them on a timeline made with Popplet. They can also insert photos of the parts of a plant, or of a simple machine, and then create a flowchart about how the parts function together. The online feature lets students collaborate on the same organizer at the same time and share their work with others.
