We Made Trailers

Posted by willkay on April 12, 2015

March is Book Month in the sixth grade. We do several different “book related” activities, including: Book Trailers.

The students pick a book, pick scenes from the book, write a script, think about camera angles, and then perform. In 6B, this year, Mrs Kay gave up the camera and allowed the students to film the trailers themselves.

Here are the finished products, enjoy:

The Maze Runner

War of The Worlds

The Invisible Man

The Book of Lost Things
