We celebrate the 50th day of school by dressing up in poodle skirts, rolled up jeans and hula hoop competitions! I wanted to create something with each classroom to celebrate the 50th day integrating our technology throughout the entire school!
I took some time to research all the fun products that came about in the 1950s that our young students would know or care about still today! Each classroom picked the product out of a hat, we did some class research using a variety of tools and produced a short movie with our findings!
We learned about everything from PEZ dispensers and McDonald’s to Play-Doh and Frosted Flakes! The kids loved learning about all the fun products that they still may use today while we all learned a great new app, Puppet EDU (Shadow Puppet) to publish our research and share with our friends.
I took all the short videos, and put them together in iMovie with a 1950s soundtrack to complete the final project! We all got to celebrate together by watching the movie our whole school worked hard to create in our classrooms on the 50th day of school!
What an easy and fun way to bring our school community together, and learn a little along the way!
