3rd Graders in Ms. Kirksey-Floyd's class decided that it was important to persuade their community to give aid to Japan in light of the recent disasters they endured, and are dealing with.  Students came up with this concept to connect disasters we've endured in the US to theirs through images and the lyrics of the song "Lean on me".  Then they storyboarded video shots to communicate the feeling that we are all in this together.  In the process they collaborated in iMovie using the Smartboard to put all of their media articles in sequence, add voiceover, and decide what images should be seen when.  The results (below) are both poignant and moving.  Well done class 3-118!
