This video project was part of an Oregon Trail unit we did in my 4th grade class.
Students were divided into 8-person wagon trains, facing many decisions, challenges, and opportunities during nearly one and a half months of a pioneer simulation.
One of the final assignments was to work as a group to create a concept, make a storyboard and script, and then shoot and edit a short video which told part of the story of their experience.
I was almost completely hands off during the video project. This was such a positive experience overall, I look forward to using video as a means of assessment throughout the entire next school year.
