The menu was explained and students were able to choose the activities and begin their work. The menu has many interesting activities such as making a model, writing a song, or making a word cloud.
After the menu activities were completed, students were able to start planning for their green screen project. Working in small groups, students decided on a historical event that was well-aligned with the Alberta program of studies for grade 5 and wrote and produced a short video of the historical event. This piece will serve as a summative assessment for the unit.
Each teacher chose a way to celebrate their students` learning. James McKenna and Tara Thue are inviting parents to come to school to view the projects and Mme Cournoyer`s class had a gallery walk with the class.
What`s next for this project?
The classes involved will be meeting through video conference to show their green screen projects to each other.
