Stop Motion Animation Curriculum: Stories in Motion

In this 8-session curriculum, youth use video editing software, such as Adobe Premiere Elements, to create a stop motion animation. Stop motion animation promotes creativity by encouraging young people to imagine a world in which they can bring everyday objects to life. Young people build technical skills while crafting messages that make a lasting impact. Educators will find facilitation tips and strategies in this and in other resources from the collection. Learn to help students utilize media tools to communicate their ideas effectively and tell their stories in unique and personal ways. Throughout the curriculum selected youth media projects are referenced to watch and reflect on. This collection of youth media can be found on the Create with Purpose Vimeo Channel.
