5th grade stick animation

We started a project with a free computer application called STYKZ -stick animation. I had the students come up with an animation and asked them to keep in mind a story that we would later translate through imovie.  We exported our video and created the storyboard in imovie.  It was a super fun project  and definitely made the kids  think about the process to create a story.
Here is one example:

1st grade Little clouds

In first grade we have been talking about the illustrations of Eric Carle.  We read his book "little cloud" and developed our own little clouds using tux paint. It was a great way to talk about illustrations and use of color and imagination. Mrs. Suby's Class book
