Santa Monica Community Explorer Spring 2016

 

Grades 4-5

 

This spring KidUnity is pleased to collaborate with the CS Science department. Students will assume the roles of investigative journalist, environmentalist and documentary filmmaker. The team will begin by understanding the major environmental issues in our community, and then tackle a hands-on project and create a short film documenting their investigations and advocacy. In our final sessions students will present to community leaders and show a “premiere” of their film.  Throughout the program, students will be learning to use KidUnity’s social media tools to document and promote their work.
