Cool Tools #1 Go Wild

BuildYourWildSafe is a cool tool to create avatars using different animal parts and attaching them in a human body. Children can easily create a wild creature  following simple steps.

The best part about this tool is that you don’t need to sign up. Start with choosing the human body and browse through the different parts that you can add such as nose, hair, legs, arms etc.Then add some animals ears, bottoms, tails, backsides, arms , face and headgear. As you choose the body parts, you can also hear the sounds of the animals. When it is over, choose a background and click I’m done. Congrats! You have created your first wild self.

It gives you all the information about your new wild self. Print it out or mail it to others.

and, here are some ideas for you how to use this tool with your students:

Ask children to create their wild selves and write about what they can and what they can’t do.

Children can create a story about their new wild selves.

Show different wild selves and children can try to guess which animal parts you have used.

Print out some wild selves, as children describe their animals, the rest of the class try to create the same one as it is in the picture.

Children can describe their animals.

Children create a zoo photo album with their wild selves and their descriptions. They can even create their own “wild self zoo” on the bulletin board.

Children can write more about the animals that they have used on their wild selves.

Each child shows their wild selves, imitate their animals and rest of the class asks  some questions about them.

Show them a wild self picture, give them the beginning of the story and ask them to write or tell the rest of it.

This tool will be great fun for primary as it colorful, fun to play with and engaging.
