The third graders were given the task of retelling a Bible story using stop motion video. After learning how the process works by watching an example from Toy Story, the students began to plan. They started out writing a short summary of the Bible story they chose. Then, they created a plan that included what was needed for the background, characters, and props. Once the planning was done, it was time to begin creating the characters and props from construction paper.
A background image was used with help of the green screen, or blue screen in some cases. All of the stories required over 100 pictures to be taken and characters moved little by little each time to create the 30 second video. The final step was to do a voice-over reading of their version of the Bible story. Overall, the students had a great time working together as a team to create their own stop motion video from scratch.
