Create your own animated shows with a Western theme using **Puppet Pals HD**. Simply pick out your actors and backdrops, drag them on to the stage, and tap "Record."

**Scribble Press** is a book creation platform that allows kids to imagine, create, and share their own stories, and it includes great drawing and writing tools. Completed books can be instantly sent to their iBooks library. Students may either write their own story or use one of over 50 story templates.

Take "The Three Bears" and make them four. Rewrite "The Three Little Pigs" with the wolf as the victim. Or start with a blank book and write whatever story is on your mind. Students may draw their own illustrations or include photos they've taken
