Students watch a documentary video made by a Museum scientist and then try their hand at creating their own in the gallery, combining Science and English.
The Australian Curriculum English link is the sub-strand, interacting with others. The Science links with the Biological Science Understandings for Years 4-8.
For this program students will need to be in groups of four with at least one adult supervisor for every two groups. A couple of groups of three may be necessary to even out numbers but no more than eight groups can be accommodated.
Some experience with hand-held video cameras would be an advantage but not essential. The program uses Flip Cameras and students will have half an hour to explore the gallery before an Education Manager introduces the video program. The program itself will take a further hour. Raw video footage will be collected for editing and compiling back at school.
