Makin' Music Videos
- several video cameras (one for each team)
- blank tapes for each camera
- various costume props for each team to use (i.e. sunglasses, crazy shirts and dresses, etc…. all in the theme of looking like a rockstar–glamorous)
Divide your students into groups of 5-8 people. Give each group a video camera and a blank tape and let them choose a song from a pile of CD's that you have collected. Each group will need to act, sing or pretend to sing, and dance to the song they have chosen in their very own Music Video Clip.
Give each group an hour to come up with their masterpiece then all meet together and watch each others'. They turn out very funny!
You can even have some of your leaders act as judges. Have prizes for the winning team!
NOTE: You might want to have an adult leader within each group to make sure that everything stays “acceptable.” Also, they can double as the camera operator.
