Award Winning Book Trailers!

...book trailers for the books that won an American Library Association Youth Media Award. These book trailers were created by my 5th graders as part of a Mock Caldecott unit.  

I didn't anticipate the excitement my students would feel over having a book that they created a trailer for then win an award. It was an added bonus to this fun and engaging project that was embedded with important lessons about finding and citing images that allow for reuse.
