Touring the Midwest with Team Murphy

I took a trip on the Team Murphy bus this week.  We traveled from the Northeast region of the United States to the Midwest region.

Here is how we planned for this trip:
It all began with an email from Mrs. Murphy inviting me to take a trip with her class.  I love to travel so of course I agreed.
Before we packed our bags, students used the iPads and their text books to research facts about the state they were assigned.  

Using these notes the students then wrote their scripts.

Conferencing with Mrs. Murphy helped to narrow down which facts to include in the final script.

Working with their partner it was time to practice.  Students were challenged to memorize their script for the final production.

On Filming Day the big green screen was set up. "Quiet on the Set!"

After the recording we used the app Green Screen by Doink.
Students sat and discussed which pictures worked for their backgrounds.  These images were saved to the camera roll before adding them to Green screen.
