eLouai: interactive activities

Explore the world of eLouai - I absolutely love this site. It is full of interactive Flash applications that students of any age will have fun with.

Doll Makers has quite a few different applications to interact with. I created this avatar on the right that I could use with my signature in emails...even has the same hairstyle as me. Students could use the avatars for their own digital signature on assignments. Once you have created an avatar, you can save your image as a .gif, .png or .jpg. These can then be edited further in a graphic program.

Room Makers is another collection of applications that range from creating worlds for a game to creating cities. The City Creator uses the images from the SkyscraperPage website.

Caricature Maker has the components of the face broken down. As the user builds their caricature it helps them understand exactly what makes up a caricature. Each component that is placed on the face can be moved up, down, left and right. Even small movements of a mouth for example, can change the appearance of the caricature.

Explore eLouai and have some fun in your classroom.
