Sixth grade students have a story to tell. And the one they wanted to tell was about Nelson Mandela. This was a multistep project.
First the students used research tools to find information and photos about Mr. Mandela. Students learned to find non-copyrighted photos to use for their projects. Then they inserted and organized the photos in a tool called PhotoStory. They recorded narration for each slides and added music to the story. Once it was saved, it became a movie file they shared with the entire class.
Why are they in the halls? For quiet recording!
