Mission Possible-7th Grade Orientation

Mission Possible-7th Grade Orientation | 21st Century School Library | Scoop.it

I used a PowToon template to make a short introduction for my 7th grade orientation. Since most of them are returning students, I wanted to make it fast, and I didn't want to talk as much. I print out numbered instructions, with plenty of roles for students who don't volunteer for the big jobs, or who are new to the school. Here are my instructions.  

 

I will show this short video, hand out the instructions, then use this Bruno Mars parody, as the video in the instructions, since they didn't see it as 6th graders. 


Via Mary Reilley Clark
Marcia Kochel's insight:

Fun idea for an active library orientation. This could be fun for the Freedom to Read elective to make something like this for 5th graders to do.
