Kakapo, Woodlands Full Primary School, Year 7&8
During Term 3 Kakapo Room experimented with persuasive writing. The main learning intentions were to:
Work cooperatively in groups to brainstorm ideas and create a commercial.
Gain knowledge of the different strategies that are used in effective persuasive writing.
Use a graphic organizer to help them begin organizing their ideas into written form.
Analyze the work of others to see if it contains effective persuasive techniques.
Use a variety of ICT skills and effects to create their commercial.
The children had to design and create an original product that was a combination of two already existing products ie jeans and leggings = jeggings. After coming up with their product each group planned their script, shots and movie effects on a storyboard. There were many valuable skills learnt in creating their commercials and the children were extremely proud of their results.Caitlin came up with the idea of the Sauceinator because her Dad wouldn't let her bring the tomato sauce bottle to school. She also loves taking the top off her pie and putting sauce inside! We used word, imovie, iphoto and the internet to help us make our commercial. The funniest part was squirting sauce onto Caitlin's face!
The hardest part of making our commercial was learning how to green screen. We learnt lots about each other while creating our ad and how to use our voices. It was a great experience making our commercial.
