Welcome back, everyone! In my first post for 2013, I present to you a short animation that has a surprising ending. This would be a great video to present to your students when talking about Multiple Perspectives, one of Sandra Kaplan’s areas of Depth and Complexity. It could also be a fun story starter or creative writing exercise. You might ask the students to think about some of these questions:
What if our world is a BumbleVille? How would we know if it is or isn’t?
Would you want to live in BumbleVille?
How is BumbleVille different than your own community?
How would someone go about leaving BumbleVille?
What would you do if you discovered a BumbleVille?
If you are unable to view the embedded video below, you can find “BumbleVille”, produced by The STUDIO, at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oCFJGp7OQjM
UPDATE 12/6/17: For an incredible STEAM project that you can use with this lesson, check out the immensely creative Tricia Fuglestad’s post here! Also, here is a writing/augmented reality lesson that we did after watching the video.

I wanted to thank you for sharing this! My kids absolutely adored this clip-they beg to watch it every day now. 🙂 It was a perfect intro into the perspective of a snow globe resident!
Interestingly enough, I am planning to use The Snow Globe Family, which I read about on your blog, and this video with my first graders tomorrow!
