“In the Movies,” with Discovery’s Editable Video Clips

Fifth grade students are using the editable videos from Discovery Education as a backdrop for their narrative writing projects. Students are highly motivated to include adjectives, when they see themselves in the movie clip!

 

Each student wrote about a summer adventure, and then they searched for video clips that would be the best background for their narrative. We had students stand in front of a green screen, while sharing their narratives.  Some students chose to revise and edit, even more after watching their videos. This was a motivating journey through the writing process. We love the many new editable videos on Discovery Education!
