7th Grade Olympic Videos

The 7th grade students demonstrated their knowledge of different world countries and their persuasive writing skills through this fun, innovative project.  Students worked as a group to create a video persuading "the Olympic Committee Chair" to choose its country as host for the next Olympics.  The website Animoto was used to produce the videos.  

The committee narrowed the videos to the top 10.  View each of the videos by clicking here and vote for your favorite using the poll on the right. (This link can also be accessed by going to the MSIS webpage, clicking on Library Media Center, and scrolling toward the bottom of the page).  Let's see if you agree with the video that was chosen as the ultimate winner by the Olympic Committee Chair.  The voting will close on March 1, 2013, and both the winner chosen by you and the Olympic Committee Chair will be revealed the following week via our Posterous site and our blog.

Good luck and happy voting!

  1. First of all, I would like to say awesome job on the video. I agree the Olympics should be in Afghanistan and the reasons were really convincing.
