    What is Stop Motion Animation?
    • Inanimate object
    • 3. Take photo
    • 4. Change object location a little bit
    • 5. Take photo
    • 6. Continue taking incremental photos
    • 7. Sequence photos in succession
    • 8. Object appears to move
    Think of a Flip Book
  • 9. 3
    Stop Motion Animation for 5th & 6th graders develops skills in:
    Hardware
    Software
  • 14. 4
    New York State Learning Standards
    Learning Standards for Mathematics, Science, and Technology at Three Levels
    Standard 2: Information Systems - Information technology is used to retrieve, process, and communicate information and as a tool to enhance learning.
  • 15. 5
    Learning Objective
    In small groups, students will create an original stop motion animation movie by sequencing 10 still photographs of one or more objects found in the classroom.
  • 16. 6
    Materials
    Apple Computer with iMovie
    Digital camera with tripod
    Storyboard worksheets
    Small objects to “animate”

    Steps to Making Stop Motion Animation
    Movie Crew
    Storyboard
    Rehearsal
    Photography
    iMovie
    Sound Effects
    Press “Play”
  • 18. 8
    Step 1: Movie Crew
    Students choose a job within their group:
    Illustrator - draws storyboard
    Props Master - positions the object
    Photographer - takes digital pictures
    iMovie Engineer - lays video track
    Sound Engineer - lays audio track
  • 19. 9
    Step 2: Storyboard
    Students play with objects to plan out a sequence of events
    Illustrator draws frames showing object placements in small increments to simulate movement
    Frames are Numbered in Order
  • 20. 10
    Step 3: Rehearsal
    Students problem-solve object placement before taking the actual photos
  • 21. 11
    Step 4: Photography
    Photographer takes pictures on digital camera mounted on tripod to prevent camera movement while…
    Props Master manipulates objects for each frame
  • 22. 12
    Step 5: iMovie
    iMovie Engineer clicks and drags photos into sequential order on iMovie video track
    Each photo must be assigned an equal time value
  • 23. 13
    Step 6: Sound Effects
    • Sound engineersynchronizes stock sound effects with photos by placing audio clips on audio track in iMovie
    • 24. Slide the playhead to select the points where audio clips are inserted
  • 14
    Step 7: Press “Play”

    Classroom Applications of Stop Motion Animation
    Math
    Social Studies
    Illustrate 2D to 3D geometry by showing paper folding itself into shapes
    reenact historical events using common objects or magazine cut outs
    Science
    ELA
    illustrate life cycle of a butterfly using craft materials or playdough
    summarize a story or highlight a scene using objects and students in sequential poses
