Creating a story for a science or engineering video

Creating a story for a science or engineering video


Students will learn vocabulary about storytelling and through this storytelling vocabulary learn about the most challenging aspect of making a video: Creating an engaging story that is short and effectively conveys a message. Students will watch a short video, identify aspects of it that support their understanding of storytelling vocabulary (video, story, setting, characters, plot, conflict, theme, and solution) and the environment (environment, invasive species, cargo ship, ballast water). They will practice using these words and thinking about these concepts by reading a short story, using the “jigsaw” technique, and then they will begin creating a new story about the environment, using their concepts of setting, character, plot, conflict, theme, and solution.
