Students create a Public Service Announcement video on issues concerning the environment, which will “air” on the school website and at an Earth Day Assembly. Each video will focus on a single strategy that students and community members can do to help protect our planet Earth.
The students will be researching a topic chosen from a list of items covered in the driver's education class. From that research, they will design, map, film and create a public service announcement that is informative and accurate.
Students will work in co-op groups to brainstorm, plan, write scripts, keyboard scripts and then use digital video camera to film public service announcements. They will edit on the computer and we will show on morning announcements and connect to website.
Students have been conducting river studies for over five years in 6th grade. A true reflection of the experience is necessary for true learning. Writing advocacy projects and sharing them through podcasting helps to reflect on the experience.
