Product Description
Activity created for use during the last few days of the school year. This was designed for all team teachers in a middle school setting to work together. Students work in groups of 5-6 to create a town and a town's newscast based on curriculum covered in science and social studies. There is more science stories since this is the only subject without an end of year test. Students use math skills in the weather forecast to discuss averages. Language arts skills used to create a commercial. Students generate a draft of the entire newscast and once approved, they shot the newscast using a flip camera. On the last day of school all newscasts were shown and each group filled out a rubric while viewing. The team with the most points received a special prize (iTunes gift cards). This helped keep the groups focused while working on the project and watching them.
The zip files contains the following items:
2 notebook files containing expectations
Explanation of project in Word
Newscast rubric in Word
Flip camera instruction in Word
3 different storyboard ideas
Project Idea sheet with web links
