About This Activity:
I designed this unit for my gifted and talented students to follow real-world processes in creating a digital product or a presentation based on a digital product. I used this with 4th and 5th grade students. My students were extremely excited about the project and created fun challenges for causes that were meaningful to them. The students each planned a video. Some students came prepared with a final video for the day of presentations, which they had videotaped at home. Other students came prepared with a presentation for the class, which we had them present in an authentic way – to a smartphone camera (And the class), as if they were making a viral video.

Timing:
The students used approximately 8-10 class periods to complete the project.
>Research Viral Challenges (pages 1-2 of the packet): approximately 2 days
>Brainstorming Your Challenge (pages 3-4 of the packet): approximately 2 days
>Planning Your Challenge (pages 5-6 of the packet): approximately 4 days
>Presentations: approximately 1 day
