Earth Day Video Collaborative Project

Hi guys, it’s Heidi Raki of Raki’s Rad Resources and I’m here to explain our newest Global Teacher Connect Collaborative Project.

Earth Day is on April 22nd.  Last year for Earth Day, I hosted a Getting Rid of Plastic Bags Collaborative Project here at Global Teacher Connect.  This year, I am hosting an Earth Day Video Collaborative Project focused on recycling.  Each class (or a group within your class) that is participating will create a video with three parts – each part focused on one of the three R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle.  Then, the class will upload their video to YouTube or Vimeo and add a link to their video here in the earthdayvideoprojectcomments, with their grade, school and location.  I have created a project sheet that I am going to use with my class, and you are welcome to use that same sheet.  Download it free from my TPT store, or e-mail me at hlraki @ hotmail . com and I’ll send you it directly.  You DO NOT have to use this sheet, it’s just an option to make it easier – Smile.

 

Project Guidelines:

- Create a video. Videos can be created using any variety or combination of movie making or screencast programs or iPad apps, including, but not limited to: Movie Maker (on PC’s), iMovie (on Macs or iPad), Educreations (on PC, Mac or iPad), Morfo (on iPad), Explain Everything (on iPad), or Jing (on PC)

- Videos may show student faces, but don’t have to (mine won’t!)  If you show student faces, please be sure to have parent permission.

- Upload the video to a site where everyone can access it. (YouTube and Vimeo are easy and free.)

- Post the link here in the comments, along with your class’ grade(s), school, and location.

- Share the other links that have been created with your class.

- Feel free to let your students leave comments for the other classes’ videos.

  1. My 4th grade class in Brick, NJ is working on researching and writing scripts for their videos. I hope to have them done by the end of next week! Thanks for the creative (yet educational!) idea!

      BTW - my kiddos LOVED your videos. What a great idea to project a picture behind them while you film. I'm definitely going to use that filming trick!
