Our Bullodog Time is one of my favorite times to experiment with new ideas and tools. The 5th grade group of students that I have is willing to try just about anything. For the past few weeks, we have been using an iPad app called iStopMotion to make simple stop motion animation videos. The students thought that it would be fun to use their Legos to create videos after first developing a story. Using the app, they gradually built their creations and took pictures of each step.
Once the pictures were taken, they were arranged in a timeline, and a stop motion animation video was made! The students were so proud of what they created. Some of them got very creative with how they arranged their characters and moved them inch by inch. This app was definitely very easy to use and user friendly!
