Preparing Informational Video Essays to 2nd Graders

5th graders have been researching nutrition in response to questions asked by 2nd graders.  They will make informational video essays to respond to the questions.  These videos below were made by each class as a way for the students to learn iMovie on the iPads in preparation for the video productions they will do in small groups to inform the 2nd graders.

Their next step is to create their informational scripts, and decide what images will help them engage and teach the 2nd graders.  The storyboard below is a model to demonstrate to student groups how to attach images to information in a way that is appropriate for 2nd graders, and will help them understand the issues.
