Student Video Gallery

In the last quarter of the 08-09 school year, all of Mr. McDade's 3rd, 4th & 5th Gr. classes worked on class video projects. The 3rd & 4th graders produced musical videos of different ballads (songs that tell a story). The 5th grade classes produced a variety of videos.

The students were responsible for working the cameras, directing the scenes (with assistance from Mr. McDade), making scenery, choosing & creating costumes, doing make-up, & working as sound, lighting & special effects technicians. Students performed all the acting & music (with some musical accompaniment provided by Mr. McDade). Because of time constraints, the final editing of the videos was done by Mr. McDade.

These projects took a LOT of time & effort, but paid off in increased student learning - besides learning many things about what it takes to make a movie, students learned valuable lessons in group cooperation & in the development of leadership skills. We hope you enjoy the results!
