The power of digital storytelling and connecting. These fourth graders talk about their friend in Sierra Leone and how they raised money to send him to school. In one moving moment, a little fourth grade girl talks about her “good friend, Mohamed Sidibay.” Their description of the movie:
This movie was made by a group of Grade 4 students in Bradford, Ontario, Canada. It is about a former child soldier, Sidibay, from Sierra Leone.
These are the connections we need to be making, the younger the better! Think of the impact not only on the life of Sidibay but these children who have spent time connecting with and raising money to send Sidibay to school. This is another great one from TeacherTube.
