3rd grade students at one of my elementary schools created newscasts on the topic of “Rapid Changes to the Earth (TEKS 3.7B)” for their Science unit.  The students researched information about rapid changes to the earth (earthquake or volcano) and created (approximately) a two – minute newscast. 

Additionally, montages of volcano or earthquake video clips were created for the backdrop (to be inserted into PhotoBooth) to give the appearance that the students were actually in the scene. The students had a great time and what a fun way to integrate technology!
