My 6th grade students just completed a PBL in which they created a "Press Kit" to sell a fictional movie about European explorers. Students used a list of web resources to research their assigned explorer. Each "Press Kit" contained 3 components:
- A 300 word description of their movie, which is similar to what is found on the back of a DVD, or Netflix red envelope. Students were given a list of 9 questions to research.
- A "Coming Attractions” poster, created using a free online site, http://bighugelabs.com/poster.php.
- A “Coming Soon” movie trailer created using the class' free Animoto account.
Below are some examples of student-created movie trailers:
Here are some permalinks to some of their movie trailers:
