Stop motion animation has always been one of my favorite activities with the iPads and with the majority of my time in classrooms spent using our iPads for microscopy, it’s a welcome change to study mitosis, or in this case, environmental science with a little old fashioned claymation!
Ingrid Dinter and her students gave us just that. Her students took a good part of a week studying and working with the iPads to create some great projects on environmental science! Using the app iMotion, a little bit of Play-Doh, and a lot bit of creativity, her students were able to create some fantastic short films about endangered species and habitats they are being destroyed by humans.
This creative outlet gives students a chance to bring other talents and experience into the science classroom and can have some great results. Ingrid used these videos as a way to have the students teach each other! What a great project!
