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 a DECD 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.
