Rock, Paper, Scissors: Stop Motion Animation
Grades 4 to 8

In your classroom


Learn how to create a stop-motion animation! Students will begin the day by creating a narrative for their film and storyboarding it in groups, followed by hand-building characters with plasticine and assembling sets and props from a variety of materials. In the afternoon, students will use digital cameras and tripods to shoot images for each scene of their movie, and work under the guidance of an artist to animate it—complete with sound effects—in iMovie.
