Animoto - Civil Disobedience

Okay, this is my second try at Animoto. I am going to use this as part of my unit on American Transcendentalism - Emerson, Thoreau, and Whitman. This is obviously what I'm going to use to introduce Thoreau.

In the past I've just had the kids listen to the song while I showed the lyrics. I'm hoping that the combination of selected lyrics, pictures, and quotes in the movie with the music will make it a more meaningful experience.

This is great. Since your last Animoto I have been planning on doing one to introduce the themes of our second quarter. For third quarter I will be doing a "Take a Stand Unit" that involves many of the same people, so this was a great example for me. It seems like there are so many possibilities!
