Treaty of Waitangi

The following movie is about the Treaty of Waitangi, and is presented by the Einsteins Reading group. They had fun investigating what the Treaty was about. They learnt that it was about the 3P's of Protection, Partnership and Participation. They also learnt about some of the key people who were involved in the Treaty. The Treaty of Waitangi was signed on the 6th of February, 1840.

Included in this video are some bloopers to show our audience that filming and acting is not as easy as it looks. The students filmed this movie independently, but had help with editing. We hope you enjoy their movie.

Meet Room 18!

Welcome to our class blog! The following movie was put together by a group of students in our class to introduce Room 18. First they had to brainstorm their ideas, write a script, prepare a storyboard and then conference with their teacher. Once this was completed, they began filming and editing their movie independently. We hope you enjoy watching their movie. Please feel free to leave a comment.
