Since my 5th graders became so fluent with Animoto during our Tech Infused Projects and they expressed an interest in their project reflection to continue using Animoto I decided to let them continue on the Video Making journey. They partnered up and choose a picture book, which they will create a book trailer. The steps looked like this:1.) They choose their picture book and read it with their partner.
2.) They had to complete a storyboard for their chosen book and get it approved.
Here is a link to the storyboard sheet.
3.) They had to share a Google Doc where they keep track of their citations.
Here is the checklist they must view before sharing.
How to cite sources.
Free image sites.
Here is an example I show them. There are many on the internet.
4.) They use their Animoto accounts to build their Book Trailers. Here are a few examples.
**The groups that finish early got the option of choosing another picture book or a chapter book to create a trailer on.
