Students in Mrs. Sharp’s and Mrs. Downey’s Math and Writing classes used Legos to practice skills! First, they created lego houses based on a STEM activity created by Mrs. Downey. They found the area and perimeter of each of the rooms in their houses, and made sure to include at least one simple machine and working light.
Then, in writing class, they created Lego video trailers using the iMovie app. I created templates for them to use here:
But there are many iMovie Trailer templates out there! Here’s a few more I’m considering using next time:
iMovie for iPad – Storyboard Help Sheets
iMovie for iPad Printable Storyboard Templates
Here’s what the students created. They only had one class period to write and film their trailers!
