Fifth Grade creates Brain Pop Videos
Students love watching Brain Pop videos, an educational resource to which Forest Creek subscribes. One of the main characters in the videos is Moby, a large orange robot who only beeps. This year, fifth grade students created their own Brain Pop videos. The students researched a famous historical figure, wrote a script, and filmed using flip cameras. The students used Audacity to record their voice-over audio that was inserted over pictures and videos. Using Movie Maker, the students combined their video, pictures, and audio. Finally, the students uploaded their completed videos into Moodle. This entire process took several months and the students worked very hard on their movies. They quickly learned that the movie making process includes many steps, a lot of effort, and an incredible amount of technology understanding! Way to go fifth grade!
