SAMPLE FLIPSNACK BOOK:

MAGAZINE CREATION:

Using your notes construct a visual, informative and engaging document. Each of your headings deserves a section or two in your ‘digital magazine’.  Your poem should be the centre piece so it deserves supportive images and graphics.

 

HINT: Use the software you are most familiar with and skilled in.

PUBLISHER: This is the software specifically designed for desktop publishing. Check out the available newsletter templates as a starting point. Add more pages if you need them.  (Sample template here)

POWERPOINT: This is also a useful option as you can customize the slides to be A4 and many Hale students are very familiar with the software.

Once you have your 15 pages (max) magazine you will need to save this as a PDF before you upload to FlipSnack.
