The Plant Life Cycle- Claymation Videos Part 1
These claymation stop motion videos were prepared by first grade students in Mrs. Hackett's class to share their understanding of the life cycle of plants. As a collaborative group, students designed and created backgrounds and then decided what type of plant to grow. Next students used iPads to photograph the step by step life cycle of their plant using clay. Once each step was photographed, students imported the pictures into iMovie and created a short film. Next they added their voices to describe the plant life cycle and added a title and credits.
Students were able to complete these tasks with very little adult support and I think the results are very impressive for a group of first graders just learning to use these new technology tools! Please leave a comment to tell us what you think!
