5-303 Practice Video Instructions

November 17, 2006

Mr. Flickinger’s class (5-303),

On November 29th we are going to shoot some video in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. We will bring the video back to school and in groups you will use the video clips to make ecology videos by reading your writing over the clips in iMovie.

Before you go, you are going to make videos by putting photos from the Internet with your voices reading excerpts from your rain forest essays.

Here’s a sample of how it might work: Video Sample on The Media Spot

Here are links to the photos I used to make the video you just saw. I found them by using “key words” from Walt Whitman’s poem to search (, a website full of free photographs on all types of subjects.

For your videos you will do searches for “key words” in the lines of your writing on, and save them on your computers for your videos in iMovie.

For example, I put the “Key Words” in the following line of poetry that I would use in an Internet search in bold text:

The early lilacs became part of this child,
And grass, and white and red morning-glories, and white and red clover, and the song of the phoebe-bird
