Canada Photo Essay - 3rd Grade Project

#edtech #edchat #elearning My 3rd grade students have just finished their project on Canada. The students have been collecting photos from different approved websites to represent different aspects about the country of Canada. The photos were then to be presented in a slide show with narration that each student wrote and recorded themselves. Here is a sample from one of my students...

As you can see from this example, students chose beautiful images to tell their story about what they have learned about Canada -- digital storytelling at its best! The students used MS Photo Story 3 after learning how to use it by following the video tutorials on our school's Atomic Learning account. The fun part was seeing how shocked the students were when they saw how professional their photo essay looked. One student even commented, "This could be on the Discovery Channel Mr. Flick!"
