Stop-Motion Animation 2015

Fourth graders developed skills in storytelling, claymation, technology and, most importantly, collaboration as they worked in teams to plan and create their animations. There are many steps in the stop-motion process:

1. Sketch/write a storyboard showing characters, location and story arc

2. Make characters, props and backgrounds out of clay and paper

3. Photograph the characters against the backgrounds, step-by-step. Some animations have close to 200 photographs!

4. Upload photos to iMovie and edit the animation with timing, titles, sound and visual effects

5. Watch the animation and revise where needed

Watch these animations to see how well students understand the animation process!
