My stop animation video (view here) teaches first grade students basic information about the four seasons. First grade students are required by Georgia Performance Standards to learn about the four seasons and this project is designed to do just that.
Although our project is rather juvenile and “cutesy” it is still effective at explaining that as the world rotates around the sun it also spins on its own axis, changing the earth’s distance from the sun and creating the four seasons.
Since this is my first stop animation project I know now to tape the paper to the table and to find good lighting for filming. These were both things that my group struggled with and ended up impacting the quality of the project.
