Stop Motion Animations

This week, Lions created some brilliant animations showing how a bean plant grows. They worked hard to plan their animation, drawing each step to show the plant’s growth.

The children drew 16 steps and captured each image with the iPad camera. They had to make sure their hands were very steady!

By using a technique called onion skinning, they positioned the camera to show the plant growing but the plant pot staying stationary!

They worked together superbly and produced some excellent short videos. They will all be uploaded to the blog shortly but here is a quick taster!
