Stop Motion Meets the Colonies

To explore the ideas of colonization, exploration, and the history of the time period of 1400-1600, students in 5th Grade Social Studies created Stop Motion Videos to showcase their expertise on a colony of their choice. To begin the project, students chose one of the 13 Colonies that they wanted to learn more about. Students completed research on their colony and then planned out a multi-scene Stop Motion Video to show the history of that colony. Students then became the directors, filmmakers, scene/prop creators, and sound engineers of their videos as they filmed, edited, and produced the final cuts of their videos.
