"About Me" WeVideo Project with Mr. McGonegal

Remember in second grade when we learned how to use Google Slides by making an "About Me" slide deck? Well, it's time to modernize that idea with an "About Me" WeVideo!

Can you make a one-to-two minute long video "About YOU" that includes: music, text, transitions, and of course video? You can film yourself, and/or use the "Stock Media" available in WeVideo.

Create your movie and share it with Amanda and Mr. McGonegal in Google Drive! We can't wait to see what you come up with. Come to the Meet if you want share your progress or get help.
