Here are my ideas for iPhoto:
1. Create a photo porfolio of what my kids have done over the school year.
2. Create a book in iPhoto of vocabulary word groupings.

In Comic Strip:
1. Use a kind of "template" of a comic strip. Give the kids the pictures and they have to write the captions.
2. Instead of the SP III students making a powerpoint kiddie book, have them create a comic strip.
