Global 9 Projects
September 12, 2013
We have just finished our first Global 9 movie! For this project we created a music video using props to communicate the five themes of geography which are location, place, movement, human/environment interaction, and region. Both classes demonstrated creativity and an ability to think critically about messages through digital media. They should be applauded for all of their hard work! The movies will be uploaded shortly for your viewing pleasure!

Ancient Civilizations had many cultural elements that were both original and shared. For example, Ancient Mesopotamia built ziggurats as religious temples. Ancient Egypt also build pyramids for the same purpose. Students researched the cultural elements of Mesopotamia, Ancient Egypt, and the Indus River Valley. They created #hashtags to communicate the main characteristics of each. Our video was based on the use of #hashtags to communicate short and to-the-point information. We viewed the clip below from Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and used it as a model for our videos. Students then planned, filmed, edited, and finalized these movies on their own. They worked hard while making a multitude of decisions regarding point, perspective, and style.
