5th Grade Spheres of the Earth

Screen shot 2013-11-22 at 4.20.07 PMToday 5th graders in Ms. Hall’s class at Laburnum Elementary used iMovie to make videos about the spheres of the earth: the lithosphere, the biosphere, the hydrosphere, and the atmosphere. First they went online to gather images of each sphere. They saved them to their folders and then imported them into iMovie. I showed them how to arrange the photos, crop them, and adjust them in the timeline. I also showed them how to record a video introduction and a voiceover for the photos. Next we added subtitles to identify the different spheres. Finally the students selected a song from iMovie’s soundtrack library to play during their video. It was a lot to do this early in the school year, but her students did a great job. Take a look at a student example here.
