Matariki Legends iMovies

Room 1 decided that after writing their retelling or recreation of the legends of Matariki in celebration of the Maori New Year they would make their story into an iMovie and play them on youtube.  The whole process took quite a while and involved retelling a legend, drawing the settings, creating the characters and finding any props to bring their story to life.  Using iMovie they then retold the story and learned how to align their voice with the pictures.  I think you will find their retellings are a credit to their ability as writers and as movie creators as well.
