Happy Valentine's Day!
Today our class wanted to share our thinking with you in response to a video we saw and loved from YouTube.
Last night Ms. Babalis saw a tweet made by George Stroumboulopoulos (from the CBC) about a video created during a snow blizzard. She became curious, especially since her students are inquiring about snowflakes, and couldn't wait to show them!
The video is entitled "Projector Snow" by Brian Maffitt.
Brian created this video on February 9th, 2013 during a blizzard in New York City. He pointed a video projector out of the window and projected a movie onto the snow. As he states in his "about" section on YouTube, "these are results in motion."
It has been less than a week and over 255, 000 people have viewed his video.
After watching this video, I asked our kindergarten students (4-6 years of age) the following question:
If you could send a message to Brian Maffitt about his video what would it be?
R.J.: I liked your video, because it was beautiful and magical. It reminded me of a rainbow! I think that the snow is falling too fast! That made the colours!
G.G.: Thank you for making the video. I loved it, because it was colourful! It made me feel happy, because I like colours.
T.M.: The snow storm was making the projector keep changing colours every moment. Why did you put the projector close to the window?
L.N.: How did you make this video? I was wondering this, because your video was so cool! All different colours were coming off when the snow was falling.
Mrs. Green: I wonder how we could ask Brian how he got this idea of the projector.
Thank you to George Stroumboulopoulos for tweeting about this and for Brian Maffitt for creating it.
How innovative indeed!!!
Please share with us your thoughts and reactions to this extraordinary moment captured in time.
