In-Class: worked on the following options:

Before you finish, does your video's timeline (sequence of events) match the actual timeline of the the Big Bang? Check this link for a "Timeline of the Universe for Dummies" to be safe: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/a-rough-timeline-of-the-universe.htm_l
Today we worked on the "Big Bang Dance Off" Project, specifically the Storyboard research portion (in the Guidelines Packet). Also, there is a tutorial video posted below of how to use iMotion HD, an app many choose to use for these projects...watch it...learn from it...so you can make your project more effective and easier!
HW: Big Bang Awesome Sentence Assessment (see WORK/HW below, and the assignment itself on GoogleDrive, for specific details)
Thur. 10/15 - Big Bang Dance Off Day #1: "Guidelines" review, completing the "Group Form", and "Storyboarding".
Dearest Big Historians,
Once again a #DaycarePlague has ravaged my poor children, and it is my turn to stay home and be a good Dada...which unfortunately means I'm not at school being a good Teacher. Help Mr. Raisio (and myself) out by focusing/working hard on the "Big Bang Dance Off Project". Examine the "Daily Screens" below, review the guidelines we discussed yesterday, complete the "Group Form", and start "Storyboarding".Be inclusive, make sure all members of the class have both a team and a roll that values their talents. I hope to be back tomorrow. - Bags
Below is a playlist of student artifacts that include "Big Bang Dance Off Projects"...you should closely examine as many as you can for both "strengths" and "weaknesses"; steal ideas but make sure to put your own spin on things...we do not want copies of what as already been done after all. *Note: Use the tab/scroll at the top left to choose specific videos to watch as not all projects are examples of the one you are doing now.
