Using Keynote to create a Hologram

Students get a printed template and trace the template onto the transparency sheet with a fine liner. Students cut the outer template and use the inner lines to guide their folds.

Using old cardboard boxes, cut out a cross for the base of the hologram (have some pre-made crosses as templates to help younger students trace and cut.)

The teacher/older students use a hot glue gun to stick the transparency sheet to the cross. If students cut the smaller inside (pentagon) on angles, it won't sit as straight so the better the students cut, the better it will sit on the glue.

Using Green screen, students record a message and put themselves on a black background. Green screen is not a must - they can also be on a dark wall etc but the darker the better and try to avoid patterns on your backdrop.

Finally, once the video has been recorded, add it 4 times on a black background Keynote - all positioned around an invisible square in the middle of the screen. Have one video with sound and three muted to avoid an echo but again this is not a must. Have all videos starting their loop at the same time, so for the first video it could be on tap but the 2nd, 3rd and 4th need to be edited to animate with the first video.

Happy building!!!
