Students will use their phones or tablets in small groups to create a stop motion movie demonstrating primary or secondary succession by utilizing the FREE app called iMotion! I have students upload their videos to Google Classroom, but they can also email or AirDrop them to you! It's SO easy and the kids have a blast doing this project.
There are detailed instructions with photos included that walk the students through using the app in class. Also included are:
-Checklist of Requirements
-"Getting Started" Questions to set the framework for the movie
-An area to make a rough sketch of their movie model
-"How to Use iMotion" pics + descriptions
- A list of links about succession
This PDF file can easily be highlighted and copy/pasted so you can change the instructions however you please.
It is important to realize that this app is extremely versatile and you can use it for any stop motion movie project you want for ANY SUBJECT!
