Are you taking a history class on a field trip? I have the perfect project for you. Since it is digital, no paper is necessary. Student use their mobile devices to take pictures of the experience and convert them into a music video using a free app called Animoto. It includes a warm-up activity that can be completed on the bus ride or prior to the event. This gets students acclimated to the app. After the warm-up they will be ready to complete a project aligned to any topic in history that your field trip presents. It is flexible to be used at any kind historic sites or museum.
As the field trip comes to an end, students are directed to share their projects on social media. You will have to name which one or the hashtag. All projects can then be viewed by their peers and the learning community in general. Student work and creativity will amaze you! It makes a great advocacy piece to send to the school board, administrators, the museum/historic site, and parents. You will love this one!
