Watch the trailer for the short film "Corn People"!
By Ms. Meslin , P.S. 91X
Two students in fifth grade wrote, directed, and produced a short film called "Corn People" in occupational therapy. The story is based on the Mayan creation myth since fifth graders studied this culture earlier in the year. Through the process of filmmaking, students worked on skills such as brainstorming, organizing information, creating a plan of action, writing, directing, collaboration, and communication; all areas of executive functioning critical to success in school and beyond.
