Using iMovie on iPads in Reading

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

EY 5th graders have been reading Hans Christian Andersen’s Pine Tree story. Along the way, they have been engaged in close reading activities which require them to preview and predict before reading, actively search for relevant information during reading, and reflect on learning after reading. 

The culminating activity is having students construct an iMovie video which represents the story of the Pine Tree through photos, captions, and sound. Students are learning how to search for images that are free for use for education using advanced Google tools and the Wikimedia Commons website. It has been amazing at how quickly our 5th graders have learned how to use the iMovie app and are now showing their teacher all sorts of new tricks!
