I just completed a project where students worked in pairs to research one of the 13 colonies that we have been studying. Students were given guidelines and asked to present their research in a commercial format advertising to potential settlers why they should choose their colony to settle in. Students focused on potential jobs, resources, crops, climate of the area, etc. I used a free web 2.0 tool called One True Media: www.onetruemedia.com For longer length videos you can buy a monthly membership for under $5.
Below are two samples for you to view.
For the graphic organizer I used a basic storyboarding sheet. I found the frames on Google Images and just created it into a worksheet.
Have you used One True Media for any projects? Would love to hear about them!
