The first of the Mock Caldecott Book Trailers!

The 5th grade book trailers are here!

Well, at least the first of the batch of book trailers are in. The students spent about four library periods on this project. They worked in groups to: get to know their books; create a storyboard for the book trailer; search for, save and cite images; and, create the book trailers with Animoto. You can find all the documents and directions for this project on my Webpage.  I can't wait to show these to the students in the lower grades!
