Let's Make a Movie: Stop Motion Animation

Yesterday a group of third thru sixth graders spent the day at Eisenhower Library learning about stop motion animation and creating their own videos using Eisenhower ipads.

This is their first group project where groups worked on different scenes and then we put all the scenes together to create a complete story. This is their take on the traditional "The Three Little Pigs" and is called simply "The Three Little Dinosaurs."

 

After the large group project, everyone broke into smaller groups and began to create their own videos. They built their own sets, came up with their own plot lines and characters.
