We began our study of magnets with three important questions.
We started by "close reading" a Bill Nye "The Science Guy" video about magnetism. We were specifically watching for presentation techniques that helped to make the video interesting and informative. Next we created a list of these techniques to refer to as we worked on our projects.
Now it was time to get our creative juices flowing! We had a list of questions about magnets that we needed to answer within our presentations and creative freedom to decide just how we would present the answers to those questions. We started by creating storyboards on large sheets of paper. We collaborated, compromised, revised, rehearsed and laughed...a lot!
It's truly amazing what you can do with an iPad! We were able to video tape, create animations, make stop motion videos , import green screen backgrounds, and edit our final projects all on an iPad! We used the following apps during the process:

Here is our magnet presentation. We only hope you have as much fun watching it as we had making it!
