Fourth graders in Ms. Daniels’ class at the East End Community School recently wrapped up a Side x Side Stop Motion Animation program led by teaching artist Case Ledoux and integrated with a science and literacy unit on Maine animals and ecosystems. Students began by using their scientific research and cut paper to create shoe box dioramas of animal habitats in Maine. They then crafted their chosen animal out of clay and filmed it to create a stop motion animated short. The program culminated with a showcase of the animated shorts compiled into one 8-minute film.
