Keynote Space Activity

First grade is learning to use drawing tools and basic animation in Keynote. They are also learning about space in their reading unit! They drew a space background in Keynote, added a photo of themselves posing as though they were in space, and removed the background of the photo. Then, they used "Create a Path" to animate themselves flying through space. We saved as a video and now they can share!

Wow! Such a great project idea. I'm sure the students were proud of their projects. I will defiantly be passing this project idea to our first grade teacher; she was looking for something to do with her students and this would be perfect for her and her students.

I love how this activity teaches many of the powerful tools in Keynote - drawing, adding photos, removing the background, and animation! I bet your students had so much fun creating their space scenes! Thank you for sharing!

1st grade - forget it! I'm showing this to my HS SENIOR space science class! What a great way to punch up an assignment at any level. The fun thing about reading what 1st graders are doing is thinking about how to "catch up" my high school students; we can't assume they have these skills just because they are older and have tech at their fingertips.

Thanks for sharing!

What a great project! It's a wonderful way for students to become immersed in their curriculum and what they're reading! Out of this world! ⭐️

I love this lesson idea, Lauralee! 🤩 Such a great way for students learn key digital skills using Keynote whilst being creative. And, so much potential for extension activities in any subject area! 🙌
