3rd Grade PSAs (Showcase Page)

The PSA project was a new initiative this year. The goal was to integrate technology and service into our social studies curriculum. The PSA project explored millennium issues in Africa. Students brainstormed ideas about problems they saw in the world and came up with four major categories: Health, Poverty, Water Pollution and Education. We learned about the role of a PSA as a platform for bringing attention to our issues.

Each group did research on the topic of their choosing and found statistics that were striking and would affect change in an audience. Next students came up with PSA concepts that applied to their topics after viewing several examples.  During the filming and music process students were lucky enough to work with professionals in the fields of music and film.

The PSA project served as the perfect platform to hook students in to the continent of Africa as we launched our study of various regions of the continent.
