Roosevelt 5th Graders completed a very long, but awesome unit on Claymation.
We all got together this afternoon and viewed all 17 short films.
You can watch all of our movies here -
Our 5th Grade students are super proud of this project! We were excited to see the finished work by the students in Thailand.
The 5th Grade students have finished their claymation project!! We all had a blast working together to create backdrops and props for our scenes. Filming the stop motion animation project was a breeze using our new iPads and the app iMotion HD. This was the first time any of them have done this and I'm very proud of the work they did on their first animation movie!
Thanks to the Moline Public Schools Foundation for funding my grant for 6 iPads for the Art program!
Take a look at our completed video and pictures of the project in process.
* This originally was started as a connected classroom project with an Art teacher in Thailand. Our students were going to do our movie and then her 5th grade students would continue the movie. I'm not sure if this will actually happen. The internet seems to be iffy in Thailand and I haven't heard from her in quite a few weeks. We have our completed movie done - if they add to it that will be even better. I will keep the students informed of any contact I have with her.
**UPDATE (11/3)- I just received an email from her this morning! She has our part of the movie and her students are starting their part on Monday!
5th Grade students are working on a clay animation project. There are 10 groups - each with a different scene that a colored clay ball, or balls, rolls into and interacts before rolling back out. We are using an iPad app called iMotion HD.
Here's one of our first scenes filmed.
I'm very excited to be again teaching at Roosevelt this year! The students and I have such fun, creative classes together. I love the enthusiasm of our Roosevelt Bears!
