Students Produce Videos on Migration
This week, the 6th graders completed and shared their Human Migration projects in Social Studies. They studied reasons for human migration, including push and pull factors for emigration and immigration. Then, they interviewed someone who immigrated to the United States. They used the interview to create a video using wevideo.com to demonstrate their learning in this unit.
The goal of the project was to explain human migration using the stories and experiences of the interviewee. Their essential questions were: Why do people move? and How does migration affect people and places? Check out their incredible videos here.
