An amazing site for expressing creativity. You can create a free Teacher Account, which provides some nice features for using this with students. There are numerous activities here, but the most impressive are Make a Story and Make a Movie. These allow students to use existing backgrounds, characters, and props. The Make a Story activity allows students to create JPEG images of each page of their story, so that you can post them on your web site. The Make a Movie activity actually allows students to create an animated movie of their story, which you can link to on your web site.

Combine images, music, and text to help students learn about presentation, expression, writing, communication skills, art appreciation, and media literacy. The quality of the finished work is great and students will remember it forever.
