Last Day Of Png

The PNG session has almost come to an end. Today being the penultimate class, we tied up some loose ends. We finished our comic books. This involved assembling them into paper form. We also finished up our egg drop power point presentations. To end the class, we took part in playing some technologic charades for some student bonding.

Thurs July 22 -- Egg Drop

Eggs falling from the sky? Why, its the PNG egg drop. The students got to construct devices to hold eggs safely as they were dropped from a ladder and then from the library roof. Out of 7 contestants, only 3 of the eggs survived the final drop from the rooftop.

Tues July 20th -- Comic Books!

Today looked like the comic section of the Sunday newspaper. Students took four photos of various objects and put a short story line to them. They editted the pictures using different techniques on the program photoshop. They added text bubbles and put them into a comic strip format for a realistic look.

Stop Motion Day 1 -- Thurs July 13th

Today everyone was working on stop motion with action figures/dolls. Each made their own little animation with videos that ranged from from master chief being eaten from candy to an epic battle of epic proportions. The students enjoyed their class and were able to add sound and music to their video. When they are completed on Thursday they will be uploaded to youtube.

July 8th -- Photohunt Day 2

Pose as a superhero! Today was another day of photo hunting. This time, we worked as individuals to create a scene described by the instructions. The person with the most pictures won a prize. After that, we participated in an internet math search. The math search consisted of finding answers to questions to such as how many pages are in a the first harry potter book multiplied by how many countries are in north america.

Thurs July 1st -- Podcasts

After a round of Sporcle, we decided to record podcasts. The class broke up into two groups, with each recording a radio show that could include things such as news, weather, commercials, and movie reviews. Once the recording was finished, students had to edit their shows with music and sound effects.
