In my classroom I would use this activity to develop a better understanding of 3D shapes in the world around us. We would spend time discussing 3D shapes as a class and then I would have students either take a digital camera around and take pictures of the different types of 3D shapes we discussed. If students had a difficult time finding certain shapes, I would have them look for pictures on the internet to add in their presentation. After students have their information they would go to Animoto or some other similar site and create a slideshow over their different shapes. Students would then share their videos on their blogs and with the class.
