This is a trick I did for my Nature of Math class at Biola University yesterday. I like experimenting with mixing live action with video. This one has a Thanksgiving theme.

Update (Nov 20): Wow! Thanks for all the kind comments, I appreciate it, and I'm flattered. Thanks! In response to a couple comments:

I've fixed the Closed Captioning ("CC") so it matches the words better (At first I tried the automatic transcription which didn't work too well). Also, yes, I do actually teach math most of the time - I did this at the end of a 75-minute class. Also, sorry for the somewhat choppy nature of the sound. I had three audio sources - the lapel mic I was wearing, the mic in the camcorder in the back of the room, and the audio from the video playing on the projector. I'm no expert, but I tried to adjust the levels a bit so it's easy to hear the words.

Finally: regarding the idea of being content with what we do have, I mean that we can learn to be content with our circumstances and blessings we've been given. But we can also at the same time continue to strive to be better people, and always want to improve our selves and our character.

Happy Thanksgiving!
