This project is a great way to get with your librarian or technology person at your school and get out of the ordinary art world! Bring it into the 21st century and have your kiddos use a green screen to create their very own movie short about their particular topic. Are they going to make a game show? A courtroom drama? How will your students convey their topic(s)? This lesson bundle includes 11 printables that include:
-1 student handout describing the lesson and requirements
-2 different types of storyboarding handouts
-1 handout of recommendations to keep in mind during the project
-1 Student expectations grading rubric
-2 different grading sheets for teacher: individual and group
-1 blank grid for teachers to be able to fill in with group members to take attendance in groups easily as well as give daily participation grades (if desired)
-2 blank grids for teacher to organize times for filming in front of the green screen to stay organized and on time.
-1 Group information sheet for teacher to have students fill in and turn in to allow the teacher to know groups and take the organization from there!
This project is a lot of fun and I hope you enjoy teaching it as much as I enjoyed designing and teaching it! :)
Items to keep in mind:
-Depending on the amount of groups that you have your students create, that is how you will assign the topics. I have done this project with as little as five groups (which means that you would give more vocabulary to each group) and as many as 8 groups. The more groups, the more time you will need to be in the filming facility.
-I don't recomment groups of two or three. Four or more seem to work the best, due to absences as well as camera person and actors. The work gets done faster with more students as well! :)
