Plate Tectonics Claymation

Students use the process of stop-motion claymation to explore the scientific content of plate tectonics. They research historic natural events such as the San Francisco Earthquake, the formation of the Himalayas and the Tohuku earthquake and tsunami; create models of plates with their own creative expression; photograph the models; and use Scratch, a computer coding program to animate their frames. It is a true blend of art, science and technology. A film screening is held at the end for all the students to reflect and feel proud of their work!
