Androidify Yourself

Leaping character with large glasses and a pink bow in hair.

Here is a great tool that lets you androidify yourself. We can download it as an app or you can go to the website and create your own androidify version. 

You can make your character tall, short, blocky, skinny or small in different colors. You can style your android self with clothes, accessories, shoes or phones. Then you can make your characters laugh, dance, play or do all sort of other moves. When you are done, you can share your Android self on social media or you can download it as a picture or as a gif to use it on a ppt or on a word document.

We can ask our kids to create their own Android characters and describe them. We can create various characters and and ask the kids to talk about their physical appearance and what they can do.

We can create a class mascot using this tool or we can create a character together with the kids. We can brainstorm about his/her character traits, where s/he lives; her/his likes and dislikes, abilities and disabilities. Then students can write a story about this android character. We can also ask our students to create android characters for characters in the stories that they are reading.
