Then the technical work began. They recorded their song parody in GarageBand and exported it to their iTunes library so it would be ready to add to their film footage. Next, they created a storyboard that outlined every shot that would be part of their music video. The storyboard helped them plan sets, costumes, the script, and casting.
Everything finally came together in iMovie. The students edited their footage, inserted photos and music, and added titles and captions. In the end, they had a product they were excited to debut at their school's film festival that was evidence of all they had learned in their Social Studies class. Check out their video here:
