Open Roads School Grade 1/2 Class Push the Limits!

Who would have thought that a Grade 1/2 class could create their own short videos with a message?  Mrs. French’s class did just that!  Working in pairs, each team created their own video with ideas of how to help the Earth.  What was originally a project related to Earth Day became a real opportunity to collaborate with peers and practice problem solving skills.  All of the work you see here belong to the team-very little “helping”-which often looks like “doing”-came from the teachers.  Taking photos with an ipad, deciding on music, arranging the text frames-all of these decisions lay with the students.  Keep in mind, some of these students are 6 years old!

  1. Wow! The animoto presentations are very effective. I love how you combined photos of nature and animals, as well as photos of yourself demonstrating how to contribute to a better world! Mrs. Bastable
