Green Screen Video Creation with Third Graders

For the November, 2014 Grade 3 UN Day Assembly, students wanted to create a news broadcast to go beyond the typical UN Day celebration of dressing up in traditional costumes and eating food. They wanted a way to show the work of the UN and teach others how and why the United Nations was formed.
After researching and writing the script, students used the app Do Ink Green Screen to film each other “on location” in a variety of places around the world, showing UN work in action.
