Symbols of Lent

Today in rotation Sunday school our fourth and fifth graders were in the “Galaxy of God,” which is our computer lab. Our teachers showed and discussed several different symbols of land, and then the students use the program Kid Pix to draw these symbols. Rather than end the lesson there, or print them out, we use the free iPhone app “Shadow Puppet” to take pictures and then have the students narrate, explaining what they had drawn on their screens.

Three students were involved in the creation of each short video. One student pushed all the commands on the iPhone (including taking the photo), another student shared a short introduction, and the third student described their drawing.

After class, I use the free iPhone app “YouTube Capture” to merge the eight videos into one and upload them to YouTube. Here is our final video!

    Hi Wes,
    I couldn’t get the YouTube to play. When I tried it gave an error and then said I needed to allow pop ups which I then enabled, but then it only showed pictures and no video or audio.
