Not only is Kerpoof fun, but it is a great tool for educators. Kerpoof can be used to create fictional and non-fictional stories for any subject. Pictures can be created to accompany lessons such as the life cycle of a butterfly, places in history with details about the culture, a study of a famous artist, and much more! The possibilities are endless, and the great thing about Kerpoof is that they provide lesson plans to get teachers going!
