The Animation Level I Kit will introduce students to video editing and stop motion movie making through different software options. Students will have multiple opportunities to create animations. They will animate their names being magically spelled out in playdough and create the pages for a digital animal alphabet book that displays letters turning into animals. Through their understanding of the elements of a story, they will work in groups to write and animate their own stories with defined characters, setting, and a plot that contains a beginning, middle, and end. At the end of each module, student-created videos will be shared with the class.
