History Remixed is an assignment where middle school students will be taking a historical event and remixing media to create an eyewitness video report of the event. They will be combining clips from Discovery Streaming and still images with audio that they will record on GarageBand. They also will be using a green screen video to record themselves in a scene from history.
Students: Here is a list of copyright friendly historical images that can be used in the project. Be sure to bookmark each image before you download it so that you can site the source at the end of your video.
