Create a 3-D mini cartoon show. Select a puppet, create the story, and record a show that is ready to share. Puppets can be created on the website or on a smartphone after downloading an app. To use the website, a small 3-D player download is necessary after choosing a character. Hover your mouse over the lower part of the image to view options for recording, changing the background, and more. Registration is required to save puppets. Registration requires a user name, password, and email. There is a slight learning curve to understanding how to move puppets, record, and save but you will have this figured out in no time!

In the Classroom

These interactive puppets would be the perfect way for students to display knowledge. They can use their ipopetz character to give a book report. Instead of standing up in front of the class and reading the book report, students can "advertise" a book using a puppet. Because they can record their own voice and manipulate their puppet, they display their knowledge in a new and fun way as well as become the directors for their own 3-D cartoon. Use ipopetz dialog for practice with world languages or speech articulation. Have students create shows about any subject. For example, students could create a show about a current science topic. Instead of studying from a text book before a test, students can watch each other's informational cartoon shows. Create your own cartoon to teach a subject for a change of pace. It will give you a break and the students will enjoy something new. Start out each day with a message or brain teaser for your students.
