Ms. Link, a University of Dubuque student teacher in Ms. Thill’s 5th grade class, inspired students to present their volcano inquiry research in a green screen video format. Students rehearsed scripts they had written, created teleprompter presentations to display their scripts, then performed in front of a green screen using the teleprompter. Students were also responsible for finding images to use to replace the green screen, while learning about image search techniques and copyright issues.
