Grade 6 Pangea Animation Project
Students received a map and used the features in an image editing program to crop each continent out of the image. When all continents were separated out, they imported these to PowerPoint slides. Each slide represented movement of plate tectonics. Students also wrote a story about the theory of Pangea based on information from their science book and any other available resource. Using Audacity, each student created a voice over MP3 recording which was added across the slides of their PowerPoint. Finally, setting the speed of the animation, everyone saved the PowerPoint as a movie file (.WMV). Here is a sample of their work.
Podcasting - Using Audio Editing Tools -
Students learned to edit several sound tracks and add a voiceover to create a Podcast. They were learning about primary source documents in Social Studies, and audio editing in Technology.
Grade 4 Book Burps - Quick Bookreports
Our 4th Grade students wrote book reports and we turned them into short "Burps" to tell about the book. Students also learned about filming with a green screen wall. To produce our videos, we used an iPad, an iOgrapher on a tripod and an external microphone.
Grade 4 Studied Scientific Measuring Equipment. In the Technology Lab, they used the iPad to take pictures of these tools. Our project was to learn to use templates, import images, resize, and add a caption using the program Comic Life, while showing what we learned about the tools!
