This project is designed to help students create a short documentary film using the information they gathered to create an animal report. It can be used after writing an animal report or can be adapted to be used as the actual animal report. It can be designed to appear as a documentary series with all students having the same title opening, or be completely standalone. Students will be learning to find creative commons photos and videos to use in their film. They will create their film using iMovie on their iPads.

This is a lesson to help students practice retelling a story about a person they have read about in a biography. They will practice retelling a story in sequential order, with at least 3 details about that person. They will learn to use a digital resource for creating their story and will practice other technology skills (searching for images online, typing, describing their chosen person in a clear way). I have not used it yet; it will most likely require some adjusting after I've worked through it with students.

This will allow students to be able to complete their own project using a different question. Thumbnail Image Citation: Image created by Morgan Underwood, Image taken by Morgan Underwood
