National Geographic’s website is full of great resources for teachers. The Wildlife Filmmaker feature is a fun way to introduce students to “drag and drop” film editing while they learn about animals. Students do not have to create an account to use the Wildlife Filmmaker. As long as students can use a mouse they can create their own wildlife film. This is a resource appropriate for students in grades K through 8.
