Stop Motion and Claymation

I have been having a play with stop motion and claymation lately and it so much fun! For stop motion  I have tried several different things including Lego, paper cut outs and writing on a whiteboard. So many everyday objects work well. For claymation I have used play dough. I even let some students have a turn last week! With very little instruction they came up with sone quite good results. Actually my plan is to do claymation with the junior classes next term. I will have them plan and then storyboard thier idea before they start taking photos. There are a lot of resources online that show ways to use both stop motion and claymation in the classroom.

Here is a link to one of the sites I found but there are so many more:

Claymation and Stop Motion in the Classroom

The apps I have used are Stop Motion and iCanAnimate. Both of these apps can be exported to the camera roll to add more effects in iMovie.
