iMovie Animal Research
Putting a new technological twist on presenting research findings!
The 5th and 6th graders completed a unit of study on informational text and showed great interest in the subject of focus: endangered species. Each student sifted through a plethora of animals to choose from and focused on one specific animal to study.
Step one: learn the facts. Step two: take action. Step three: wow your audience.
One of our 6th graders thought creating an iMovie would be an entertaining way to present their findings. Since receiving their iPads, the students have created so many exciting things! I said, "Sure, why not?" Well...boy, was I impressed! Between photos, voice overs, and background music, they were nothing short of a Discovery Channel documentary!
