Finger Puppets.

The travelling puppetry crew has arrived to Independence Square. One of their actors broke a finger and they are looking for a stand-in, so start stretching your fingers and polishing your nails.

Finger puppets and iMovie are a guaranty for endless hours of stories.

The Steps.

Here is my story:

Open iMovie and tap on the plus sign to start a new movie project.

Next tap on the camera to start live recording.

Put your backgrounds and puppets in place.

TIP: Have the learners write a storyboard first. You can find some templates here.

Tap on the record button to capture your first scene.

Repeat this step for all the upcoming scenes.

Once all the video footage is in, it’s time to enhance your work even further.

  • Tap on the microphone to add voice narration of the story.
  • Add filters by tapping on your video frame and browsing through the collection of filters.
  • Tap on the music note to add audio.
  • Add titles and text by tapping on your video frame and browsing through the options.

Add a final touch with transitions. Flowing your story oh so nicely from one scene to another.

When you are satisfied with the end result, tap on done. This will take you to your project overview.

Tap on the share button or the play button to release your Hollywood blockbuster.

Going Further.

Make some popcorn and grab a seat for the big premiere!

This is one of the activities that educators can participate in during The Playground at ISTE.
