During an innovative art activity at Waverly Avenue Elementary School, fourth-grade students were recently introduced to stop-motion animation with the help of art teacher Susan Kinsey and technology integration specialist Keri Haas.

Students began the activity by storyboarding the scene that they were going to record and then presenting their ideas to their classmates for feedback. Utilizing the Google Slides program on laptop computers, student groups worked together to carefully move each piece within the scene while taking photos periodically to create the animation. 

Over three art classes, students used problem-solving skills to develop new techniques that created smoother animations to achieve their desired results.
