Assignment: The Rules

This is part of a series suggesting different ways to use Moviestorm in schools or other educational environments. They also make useful exercises for film-makers wanting to develop and practice different film-making techniques. Many more lesson plans and ideas, with free downloadable resources, can be found on the Moviestorm Web site.

Assignment: The Rules
Create a short film explaining the rules of a sport. You may choose to focus on a specific rule.


Suggested techniques
Include videos or diagrams to illustrate the rules.

Add extra content on-screen by using text to complement what you’re saying.

In addition to the rules, you may wish to include techniques or training exercises.

For teachers: benefits to students

  • The student is required to show familiarity with the rules of the sport, and to be able to explain them clearly. This can be quite a challenge for some sports.
  • Providing narration builds confidence in speaking without needing to do it in front of an audience or camera.
  • Creating a multimedia presentation helps develop presentational skills and requires the student to consider what information is best presented using the different media: spoken, written, or visual.


  • Ages 14+
  • Suitable for solo work
  • Physical education
