Students in Mrs. Knutson's class have been reporting from the Amazon Rainforest this past week. Students investigated viewpoints of loggers, Amazonians, environmentalists, Rubber Tappers, settlers, and cattle ranchers.
In order for students to create the illusion they were in the rainforest they used PhotoBooth and the blue screen effect to record their interview. This effect allowed the reporters to appear to be near the Amazon River.
Students also used the video editor in YouTube to add a title.
Her Essential Question for students:
How should the resources of rainforests be used and preserved?
