Brian's Winter App

Students from Mrs. J. Thomas, Mrs. L. Pals and Mrs. McClellan read Brian's Winter. Brian is left to survive on his own without technology.  The students were challenged to come up with iPhone apps and cite textual evidence as to why Brian, would have them.  They had to go back into the story to find the evidence supporting the apps they chose.
