First Attempt at Clay Animation

Second Grade.

Life cycle of a plant.

Here is a link to the lesson plan I used.

Here is one of the finished projects.

What a great lesson! I'm sure the kids really enjoyed it.

Very cool idea of using the paper. I really like the effect. I did some with lego figures. iStopmotion , the software I used, has green screen capabilities. I made a green screen stage for the figures. Kids drew their backgrounds and I inserted them when we made the movie.

Thanks for the comments. Mr. Granger, I loved your students' lego animations. They were great! I liked your blog for your students a lot, too. I didn't know if I should leave a comment for you there because it is for your class, so I hope you stop by here again and see my comment. Your book looks very interesting, too.

This is really great. I'm amazed that they were second graders. This is one thing I'd really like to eventually do in class. I'm getting tripods this year, so it may finally become a reality.
