Third Grade Stop Motion Animations

This year I decided to let my students choose the idea for their movies.  In the past I have chosen the theme for them thinking I was helping them but they were very capable of coming up with their own ideas, creating their scenes and characters and filming their movie.  I made a checklist to help keep them organized.  Stop motion animation is always a favorite lesson but I think choosing their own ideas made it even more of a hit.  I was impressed with their ideas and realized how limiting it was when I made all the decisions.  I have such a creative group of students.  Check out their class movies.
