Web 2.0 Assignment

Click here to view my popup book ---> The Zoo Book

For this assignment I created a popup book using zooburst.com. On this website you are able to create a book and add pictures that pop up when you turn the page. I think that this website would be fun for any grade but especially the younger ones. If I were to assign a project to my class I would have them brainstorm on paper some ideas of a story they would like to write. I would have them write a rough draft. After I have edited their rough draft I would allow them to use zooburst.com to create their own online popup book. Before they got started on the computer I would show the students, using a smart board, how to navigate the website to create their book. I would have criteria for the assignment such as the book must be 5-10 pages long, each page in the book must have a picture that goes along with the sentence, and all sentences must be complete with no grammatical errors.

I found this website easy to use and very fun! You are able to save your work, which is nice because you could spread this assignment over a few days if you wanted to give the students plenty of time to complete their project.


  1. Hey Jen,
    Your book is adorable! I think it is a great strategy to use for beginning readers and beginning writers! The pictures in your book would help beginning readers with new vocabulary. :) Thanks for sharing your new website you found...I can't wait to go on and explore! :

  2. Jen: The pop-up book is wonderful! what a way to get students excited about an upcoming field trip to the zoo. The interactive pages can easily get students into the book and enjoy reading about the animals.
