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.
