Bringing Mr. Clay to Life

One different activity I am bringing to Claymation Summer Camp this coming week (ack! So soon!) is to give students a lump of clay and use stopmotion to bring it to life. (I used to use my sons’ toys and create a short movie with those, but I want to get them working with clay quicker). The idea is to use frames to watch a piece of clay “become” something.

As usual, I decided to do the activity myself and this is what I came up with:

  1. I love the way you always try out everything you do with your students (and then share it with us). I can see claymation being a big hit with the students (especially the boys) in my new Grade 5 class and am working on a way to embed claymation (I’m really keen to give it a go too!) into our learning for 2009/10! Thanks for sharing Kevin – your ideas are awesome!
