The 5th graders are developing an ad campaign for a colony they are researching with their small group in social studies. Each group will create a TREE MAP/ANCHOR CHART to display the highlights of their research. They will also create a billboard that reveals the slogan for their ad. Collaboratively, they will write a 60 second script that creatively advertises their colony's reasons for founding, geography/climate, economy/jobs, and government. This leads to the creation of a STORY BOARD that will map out every shot of their commercial. Finally, they will film and edit their commercial. Students will use GREEN SCREEN effects to add realism and creativity to their project. After all projects are complete, the students will use the commercials to compare and analyze the colonies and colonial regions. The project concludes with a SELF-EVALUATION as well as PEER EVALUATIONS and REFLECTIONS!
