    ​1. Use tutorials to develop skills with a new piece of software.
    2. Develop an animation using stop-motion techniques.
    3. Document the process of developing a stop-motion animation.
    4. Research the history and connection of stop-motion and STEAM.

    INTRODUCTION:  Using PowerPoint, create a title and introduction slide. These slides must have the authors first and last name. The objectives must be REWRITTEN IN YOUR OWN WORDS. The presentation must be aesthetically pleasing and grammatically correct.

    1. Check out Zoob Stop Motion construction kit
    2.  Go use this tutorial to help you learn more about Frames. You finished the tutorial when you reach the "Conclusion" page. 
    3. Read This tutorial
    3. Make a simple model of a person or animal. (Don't spend too much time on this-- it's just for practice.) 
    4. Make a 5 Second Stop Motion (at least 50 pictures!)
    5. The stop motion must have a simple to understand story line.
    6. Using a tripod take 80-100 pictures where you change its position slightly each time.
    7. Upload your pictures into your Learners and save into a folder titled the name of your stop motion movie.  
    8. Open Frames
    9. Import the folder into frames.

    1.  Who are Ray Harryhausen, and Eadweard Muybridge? And how did they influence Stop Motion?
    2. What was the first stop-motion animation?
    3. What are some iconic stop motion animations in history? What makes them famous versus others?
    4. How have techniques changed or improved over the history of stop motion (compare Jason and the Argonauts and Box Trolls)?

    1. What makes a good stop-motion video? (consider the 5 C's of cinema) Use evidence to support your claim.
    2. How is or can the technique of stop-motion be used in science, math, engineering and art?

    1.  Develop a much more complex animation (10 seconds) (remember, 15 frames equal one second of animation) by storyboarding in your Field Notebook to help you organize your animation before you start filming.
    2. Have interacting characters

    1. Choose one of the four C’s and tell us the strengths AND challenges your group faced through this engagement  (Collaboration, Communication, Creativity, OR Critical Thinking).
    2. What have you learned about yourself or group using the C chosen?
    3. What advice, specific to this engagement would you give a group starting this engagement
