The students will use the flip cameras to video how to eat an Oreo Cookie. The students will have written a descriptive how to paper first, then created a story board of what they will show in their video. After recording a partner, each student will download their video to the laptop, share and share it with the class.
Flip cameras and laptop computers

Prior to instruction, the teacher needs to...

1. Have students practice with the flip cameras. Mostly holding still and getting a good shot of the person they are recording along with good sound.

2. Make sure each student has completed their how to paper and a story board of the four main parts they are going to video.

3. Have the students practice what they are going to say.


In this lesson, the teacher will...

Help students edit and practice thier recording lines.

Provide any props needed.

Provide a quiet place for partners to record.

Help with downloading and viewing each video as a class.




I used the Oregon State Writing Scoring Guide to score their written papers. I used a simple teacher made check off sheet for the videos since it was the first time 3rd graders had used the flip cameras. I didn not grade on quality, but cooperation, proper use of the technology and cooperation and completion. Attached is my check off page.
