Counting Book
A Counting Photo Book iMovie
Project Description In this project, Kindergarten students with the assistance of their Grade 6 buddies created their own counting books. Students used the digital camera to take photos of sets of objects to use in their book. Students imported their photos into iMovie and create a counting photo book with text identifying the numerals and the objects. A special thank you to Mme. Lange and Valerie and the kids for making this project possible.
