Sample Scripts to Use With Elementary Students
These scripts were created to give an example of using Discovery Education resources in the green screen process. Use this link to access sample scripts and video links for creating your own elementary newscasts. You need a Google account to access this version. The link will force you to create a copy of my slides. If you prefer to work in PowerPoint, create your copy and download as a PowerPoint.

For those without a Google account, download the pdf version.
Send me a message if you want another file type.
