Movie Camp Materials

Related to my horror movie camp, but usable outside for any high school or middle school classes where applicable.

Last few slides for some of these are hand outs.

I am doing a movie camp -grade 3-4, and grade 5-6 this week.  I am doing the exact same activities for both groups.  I have modified some of these old powerpoints for my camp.  Here is everything I have.  Designed for low level grades 3-6.  Two  40 min. periods a day for 5 days.  There are 2 extra activities not written on the lesson plan.

Balloon Burst- print out 2 sets of the sentences and put them into balloons, the 2 teams compete to pop the balloons with their bodies and put the sentence words in order.

Go Fish - print a page for each student, they cut out the cards and use them to play "movie genre" go-fish.

Here is my lesson plan for Day 1, which is only 1 period. I used some materials already found on here and modified them to make games and presentations.

Hi

I really like your idea for the camp. However, I was just a bit unsure how you determined which was real and what was fake videos?

Thought I'd post my camp here as it went really well for my students! This is for middle school grades 1 and 2. Please note that my kids are relatively high level. This is a five day camp, 3 hours a day. I teach it twice.

Theme: Blockbuster Movies (every day is a different movie and we do activities based on those movies)

Day 1: Intro/The Avengers
Day 2: Wall-e
Day 3: Harry Potter
Day 4: Mission Impossible
Day 5: Movie Day! (We watched Jurassic World)

I'll attached the schedule and materials list here, then do a separate post for each day (except day 5, when we watched the movie and gave out prizes for the most stickers collected).

Day 1: Intro/The Avengers

Schedule
1st Period (9:00-10:30)
- Camp/theme introduction
- Icebreaker game (concessions race)
- Go over point & reward system/expectations for week
- Students make and decorate “Hollywood Walk of Fame” sticker books
- Watch movie clip
- Basic superhero presentation + powers
- Superhero memory game

2nd period (10:40-12:10)
- Students create their own superhero/villain
- Students make superhero paper dolls (http://www.cubeecraft.com/genre/pop-culture/1)
- Wordsearch if done early
- Superpower card battle game (if time)

Didn't have time for the card battle game in either of my camps. The students got really creative with the superheroes/villains though and really enjoyed the paper dolls.

I used a lot of information from the superhero camp thread, so thanks to those contributors!

Day 2: Wall-e

Schedule

1st Period (9:00-10:30)
- Watch movie clip
- “Line up!” warm-up game: students learn the importance of non-verbal communication by lining up in different manners without talking (e.g. by birthday, by height, by birth order, etc.)
- Communication/gestures presentation
- Students match gestures to meanings
- Play “Gestures” game
- “Space Directions” game

2nd period (1040-1210)
-Recycling presentation
-T-shirt bracelets
-“Clean Up the Planet” relay race (outside)
-Wind down: crossword puzzle/wordsearch (if time)

Never had time for the "Space Directions" game, although I think they would've enjoyed it. They really loved the gestures game and the bracelets. I found the gestures game on waygook but I can't remember from which thread -- sorry!

Day 4: Harry Potter

Schedule:

1st period (9:00-10:30)

- Movie clip
- Sorting hat activity: personality quiz
- Care of Magical Creatures presentation
- “Creature Conundrum” (egg drop): students design a transport device for an egg to be dropped out of a three-storey window

2nd period (10:40-12:10)
- Divination: palm-reading activity
- Transfiguration: “body language” game (animal version)
- Wind down: word search (if time)

Egg drop ran long both times -- maybe until 11:30ish? Found palm reading activity here on waygook, although altered it to make it easier for my students. Never had time for body language.

Also warning: almost all of my students (17/20, then 16/20) were Hufflepuff, so I would print more of those than the other descriptions.

Day 4: Mission Impossible

Schedule:

1st period (9:00-10:30)
- Movie clip
- Warm-up: I Spy game
- Spy & code presentation
- Students make CIA ID badges
- World knowledge trivia
- Puzzle race

2nd period (10:40-12:10)
- Spy & code presentation pt. II
- Cat Burlar scavenger hunt
- “Secret Agent Man” listening activity
- “Run & Remember” game (running dictation)

I took the iSpy and world trivia games from waygook. The world trivia was orignally a world music game, but I took out that part. The puzzle race was the most popular activity on this day. Never had time for running dictation (the scavenger hunt took a while).
