Teachers and parents know the value of animations in helping all ages engage and understand complex topics. In this workshop, let’s make our own stop motion animations to explore science! Appropriate for grades 3-12, we will use cut paper, polymer clay and classroom tablets to create short animations specific to essential standards and topics, from states of matter to cell division. Working in small teams, students will learn the value of collaboration and improve their math and fine motor skills while accumulating frames that add up to a video. Jaclyn will meet with teachers to tailor lesson plans that are age appropriate and identify topics of focus.
