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!
