This project is going to be around using an app called LEGO Movie Maker. This app is used to create short movies using pictures, audio and other effects. To create this video you will need an iPad with the LEGO Movie Maker app as well as Build to Express LEGO kits. The iPad will be used to take all the pictures and put the movie together. The Build to Express kits is full of LEGO bricks. The kits will be used to create a physical representation of a short story written. This story will be written with a beginning, middle and an end. This story can be written about anything you desire as long as grade level vocabulary words are used throughout the story. This is a great way to be creative and physically see a story you create.
