For Passover this year we will be doing stations. Fourth grade’s station is to show a video that we made about Passover to our guest. Here is how it goes:
We read a story about how kids went back in time and learned the story of Passover through time travel. We had to show how we thought the Jews felt about being slaves. We could either be a slave and show how we felt, or we could be an outsider, watch the slaves, and then say how we thought they felt. I chose to be a slave. We had to make a storyboard for it before we could make it on an app. Here is my storyboard:
We then had to use backgrounds from “JI Studio” and then transfer the pictures to an app that you can record in. I chose to use the app “Pixie” to record.
At the beginning of the video, I am having a Seder with my family. It is really late, so I fell asleep. I dreamt that I was a slave in Egypt, and I was mad at Pharoh. I ran away from Egypt to the desert. I saw Moses talking to G-d, and then Moses turned around and asked me to help him talk to Pharoh. When we arrived, Moses was scared, so I told Pharoh to let the Jews go instead of Moses saying it. Pharoh says no, but gives in after ten plagues. Moses tells us that we have to eat the Seder fast, because G-d is taking us out of Egypt. Moses asks me if I would like to lead the Jews out of Egypt and I say yes. At the end, I am singing a prayer with Miriam. Then, my mom wakes me up and tells me it is time to say what I learned about Passover. I smile, because I remember the dream that I just had.
