Students become part of a small group as they design, script, sculpt and video record a claymation video centered around a content focus. Examples might include choosing a type of plant, animal and/or ecosystem, exploring a body system, retelling a fable, describing the geological history of the earth, or even as a means to illustrate their own story as they create an animate claymation video.
