Our 5th grade reading group read an old tale by Hans Christian Andersen titled “The Pine Tree.” Students spent a over a week engaged in some in depth reading of the selection focusing on the evolving theme of story, character analysis, vocabulary, and story structure. The culminating activity was to create a video using iMovie on the iPads which represented the story that included free-use photos, story captions, and free-use music. Most of the projects are complete and posted. There are a few in the latter stages that will be posted when they are complete. Please take a few moments to view their work.
