The Year in 60 Seconds is a video from Reuters featuring images and some sound bites of the year’s biggest global news stories. I found this video on The English Blog. As Jeffrey Hill mentioned on his post, the video makes you wonder if anything good happened in 2011. (There hasn’t been one made yet for 2012).
Creat your own “Year in Review” video using Animoto.
Try to find a variety of images / video clips of important and major events from Canada and around the world.
Post the video on your blog with a brief description of why you chose the images you did.
Then, write a paragraph responding to this question and post it on your blog:
What was the most world changing event of 2012?
