Balloons Over Broadway Keynote

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade is an iconic and beloved annual event that captures the hearts of millions, heralding the arrival of the holiday season in the United States. But why not make it digital?

Pair this Keynote with the book "Balloons Over Broadway" to create a digital Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade with student created designs. This Keynote is structured to walk Ss through the engineering design process - ask, imagine, plan, create, improve. Ss will airdrop slide 10 to Ts to create one digital parade using iMove.

Examples attached in Keynote.

Thank you for sharing Katy. I really like that you had the "Improve" slide in your project. I think it is important that student get a chance to reflect a make changes, but sometime we rush or skip that step to move on to the next thing.

I recognize some of those videos. 😉 I love seeing this project come together every year! It would be so cool to see a bunch strung together as a one long parade.

I love connecting projects like this to literacy! Great work - I know the students were engaged and they will remember that learning experience. Like Lindsay, I enjoy seeing how this lesson evolves each year.
