The Build Your Own Board Game Program at Dalkeith Elementary brought things into the 21st Century by using iPads to record television commercials for their newly created board games.
Every Wednesday morning since the end of September, the Build Your Own Board Game program students have combined their creative skills and worked together to further their board game creations.
Before filming, students wrote scripts for commercials to showcase their games, with a special focus on target audience, age range and where people can find/purchase their game. They drew and coloured in props to use during their filming process. They recorded their commercials as a team, acting in unison, and in turn emphasized the importance of cooperation to help things run smoothly. As an added bit of fun, we screened the commercials and the students played each other’s games!
Both teams did a wonderful job!
