5th Grade Book Trailers
The 5th grade created movie and movie trailers using iMovie on the iPad. The project was designed to demonstrate students' knowledge of story elements based on their reading group novel. Students collaborated to plan and create their iMovies. Groups began by using a storyboard organizer. Many students chose to organize their iMovie using the apps Popplet Lite and Corkulous. After planning, groups filmed scenes using the built in camera on the iPad. They organized the clips in iMovie and added music, voice over, and transitions. Students presented their movies to the class to spark interest in reading their novel. Teachers used a rubric to grade the final presentations. Some students chose to use iStop Motion to create stop motion videos.
