In our sixth grade science classroom, we like to get our hands dirty. We like to get out of our seats and do some applied science. We learn best by trying what we are learning.
The students in our classroom are ready to get their hands dirty and try stuff on their own.
The students are ready to take control of their education. They want the teachers to relinquish control and stop lecturing and rather let the students, themselves, discover information.
Students will be able to create better stop motion films with better cameras. We currently use iPads, but they tend to be cumbersome and expensive to use. We want to be able to use these USB camera connected to Chromebooks to get better quality stop motion films.
Students will research a topic and then create and edit a stop motion film to present to class about that topic.
We hope that getting more versatile cameras will make the project easier on a technical side, so the students can concentrate more on the content of the project than the technical issues.
