Paper Slides grades 3-5

Creating a Paper slide show is one strategy for students to devise a storyboard collaboratively and practice, practice, practice before recording! Each group is allowed one shot at recording their slide show.  There is no editing.  This is a creative way for students to put content into a sequential format with the information they have researched and learned in media specials.

Third Graders were divided into groups and each group created a paper slide show about Helen Keller. Fourth graders used author and illustrator Chris Van Allsburg as their focus, and the fifth graders created recordings which included people and events about the Lewis and Clark expedition.

The most important feature was students had to work together and agree about what was to be included on seven slides AND each student had a responsibility within their group, so everyone was involved!
