I started an afterschool group a few weeks ago. The class is made up of about 16 4th and 5th grade students. We are working in groups of two or three. We are learning the process of animation using digital cameras and SKITTLES! The process is really cool and we are having a blast doing it. The kids are thinking of design or picture ideas they want to create using the Skittles and then set them up and take pictures one skittle at a time. They import the pics into iPhoto for storage and will later use iMovie to create the final movie. We are planning on making one long movie comprised of all the small group movies. I am posting a few of the pictures with this post -- and when the final movie is completed I will post that here as well!
