Final Video Celebration Presentation by Armynn Galicia
I’ve sprinkled/dusted the PoL in this power point. I hope it is clear when you are reading it through.
Back in November my grade 3 students were asked to create a video about playground safety in the school as a part of our Health Curriculum. This video would be presented in our school assembly. We used an inquiry based approach to take us on this journey.
The students were very proactive in making the video from the start. They brainstormed the do’s and don’ts when playing in the playground and also asked an expert (our playground monitor) to check our list and to add more information.
Once we had our ideas, I divided the kids into groups that I knew could work well with each other.
We watched a Dorritos commercial and discussed the different angles and how it highlighted the emotion of the video.
Angeles of focus were:
-Long shot -Wide shot -Up shot
-Mid shot -Close up
Each group was given a camera to explore how it works and to try out the different angles.
Then we discussed the jobs for video making (camera boy/girl, actors, director) and students organically chose their jobs.
Students were asked to rehearse their scenes then apply their scenes in a storyboard. In the storyboard students were asked to draw each scene depending on the angle and to describe the scene.
Here are the groups practicing their scene.
Here are the students filming their scenes!
A director hard at work yelling, “ACTION!” In her hand is the trusty script that she refers to after every shot.
The actors are standing on their spots, the camera boy is ready to film.
Watching our video!
“I liked that we worked with each other. No one fought or argued.”
“I was proud of myself and my class, because the whole school got to watch what we did.”
“It was fun! I never worked with a camera before, so I learned something new.”
“I liked yelling ‘Action!’ or ‘Cut’ and everyone had to listen.”
