Stop Animation! (3rd/4th graders) FULL

We need designers! We need builders! We need animators! Many talented artists are needed to sync a voice to animation, create characters, build scenery, and animate. Students will build new skills and bring their imaginations to life as they work together in teams to practice animation techniques such as lip-sync, pixilation, and loops. Bring a USB to class to take your animations home!
