Students used My Simple Show to create explainer videos on their Novel Engineering project where they engaged in the design engineering process after reading Maniac Magee.
Students used My Simple Show (MSS) to reflect and share about their Novel Engineering Project where they constructed a solution to a problem one or more of the character in Maniac Magee faced. Some of the problems students came up with were homelessness, poor living conditions, and drunk driving. Students worked in groups to write a script where they reflected on how they came up with their solution and what the most challenging and rewarding part of the project was. After creating their MSS, students shared their videos with one another. This was the final reflection piece in the Novel Engineering Unit for all of fifth grade so most of the fifth grade students were able to create a MSS video.
