Weather Movie Makers

Our students are expected to share their learning through a variety of media, so we like to create fun, engaging projects with each unit of study!  Second grade was researching various types of weather and wanted a special way to produce their hard work!

We created newscasts using the FABULOUS green screen app by Doink!  We use this app for many purposes, but this project was the first time we tried using all three layers of movie magic!

Our students saved images of their storms, an empty newsdesk and then dressed for the part!  They were able to be reporters at a newsdesk to introduce their friends, and change scenes using iMovie to create a complete weather research report!

We used our green wall, a desk and the app by Do Ink to create the fun.  Each child was filmed sitting at the desk, and standing by the green wall with a microphone, just like the real weather reporters!  We put all the clips together in iMovie, and shared them with our families on Seesaw Learning Journal!

A great lesson on real-world connections, collaboration and communicating our learning in a very sophisticated way!  Enjoy a great example here: https://goo.gl/qOjLke
