Learning activity details

The BizMovie program is designed for students in grades 3-8. It consists of multiple sessions with various activities with homework assignments. Students learn about creating a real world business by applying for jobs, incorporating the business, writing and storyboarding a movie, shooting video (we modified this from creating an animated movie) and editing the movie. They also learn about marketing and selling tickets with the goal of producing a final video that appeals to their target audience.

The program is aligned with multiple national standards, including NCTM, NCEE, NCSS, NCTE and ISTE.
