Fifth grade student's have been working in LMC this past month on designing and creating a book trailer from a realistic or science fiction book they have read and enjoyed. A book trailer, which is similar to a movie trailer, tries to interest the viewer in reading the book. First students took time to view book trailers by other student's and by authors who often create a trailer to help advertise their new book. Next they created a book trailer plan, identifying the problem in the story, a hook, and a list of the images they will need to tell the story. Finally they worked with the iMovie app on the iPad, bringing in images, adding text or their voice (or both) and finally adding music from the iMovie choices, Garageband or some copyright free You Tube music choices. Sit back grab the popcorn, enjoy the trailers, and figure out what to read next!
