6E hosts SURVIVE! Film Festival

After reading the survival story Hatchet by Gary Paulsen, students on 6East were faced with creating their own survival stories. Students were placed into groups and each group was assigned a different country to research using databases and materials in The Hub. After writing a script that included facts about the country and the items necessary for survival, they each collaborated with their peers and used their critical thinking skills and creativity to create a movie using iMovie software on what is necessary for survival in Fiji, Canada, Sudan, Brazil or Iceland. They were very excited to be the first ones to test out the new green screen in The Hub, and they all put a lot of effort into filming and editing their video. Once the movies were complete, 6E hosted a film festival on Friday, March 28th, where the stars of each film walked down the “red carpet,” introduced what they learned and enjoyed the premiere of their film!
