Movie Making in the Classroom: Planning & Practicing the Scenes

By Beth Newingham on April 2, 2013
  • Grades: 3–5

During a movie-making project, after we have brainstormed a theme, assigned roles, and devised a script, students make a list of props that they will need to make or bring from home. This also includes costumes. Although I have collected quite an array of costumes over the past few years that are often used, students also enjoy designing with their own costumes by gathering materials and clothing from home.

Students also determine if their scene will need to be taped in front of a green screen and decide whether or not they will need certain pieces of furniture in their scene. Actors then memorize their lines and then practice their scene to make sure it is ready for filming.

Watch all the movies my students and I have ever made!
