Balloons Over Broadway--Digital Edition

This project was inspired by the popular story and activity Balloons Over Broadway. Students used Keynote to create their float digitally, animate it, and then save it as a movie clip. The teacher then combined the class projects into a digital parade. In this version, students put their float on the background of New York from the early days of the parade. The Keynote also walks students through the Design Process to complete the project.

Really appreciate the scaffolds you've provided in these slides to support students' design process. What a fun and creative literacy connection/extension after reading the book!

I have come up with an addition for next year. Students will use sentence stems and record themselves as the announcer for the balloon coming down the street. They will make sure to describe the shapes that makeup the balloon.
