How We Can Help Our World

Since Earth Day my kids and I have been having lots of conversations about how we can help our Earth. They had so many ideas and this video, that we created, was just a few of their ideas.

Each child drew a picture, took the picture with photo booth, uploaded it to animoto, and added text. (I did help with a bit of the spelling.)

I hope you enjoy the message my six and seven year olds wanted to share.

Just had a chance to watch this. It is beautiful and thoughtful. Can I send it out on Twitter?

Oh my gosh Lauren. I was so amazed with this presentation. Your students have outdone themselves. I especially liked hearing "We Are the World" in the background. That's a mighty special piece to me.

But mostly I'm impressed and grateful to you for introducing me to another technology, and that by example! You have clearly established yourself as a teacher leader. Thanks!
