Sixth Grade- Xtranormal Projects

Students created animation videos using Xtranormal.com. Students wrote scripts that included ten vocabulary words (integrating Technology and Language skills). They were given creative freedom to pick their characters, settings, voices, and camera angles. Since the program is web based, students were able to work on the project at home.
Here are just a few samples of the videos.
