More Stop Motion from Mr. Goodwin's 2nd Graders
This is an animation that my students made after reading the book "My Father's Dragon." They created a list of scenes and a list of characters and props. They then made the props and characters out of paper. We used our tablet in the room to animate each scene from the book. Afterwards the kids developed a script based on the book and recorded themselves reading their lines. We learned about stop-motion animation in Technology at the beginning of the year and continued to explore it through different projects. The kids also learned about the editing process. They had a blast creating this and were able to see how you could take a book and do so much more with it.
