This is a wonderful activity for the end of the semester. We use Moviemaker to assemble photographs, text, video clips, and music files into a movie of their choice. I let them select the theme. I've seen incredible results as students recount their highschool career, family memories, a sport that the live for, and what they will do after graduation.
I've included screen shots of Moviemaker to show pivotal instruction points. At the end you have a rubric to use with your students.
