Watch Pear Tree’s Students’ Slowmation Project

Students at Pear Tree Education made a series of slowmation videos as part of their spring break course at the 21st century learning centre

Using still photography and a combination of materials, including clay, paper, and Lego, the students tell the story of Super Pig.

The story seems to be that an ordinary pig lives on a farm, acquires special powers after eating healthy fruit (ties in nicely with Kids Can Cook!), and then flies to the moon with a duck. Super Pig then does battle with Dr. Snake.

From an educational perspective, the course involved technology (cameras, video editing on a SMARTboard), drama (voice overs and role play), language arts, art, problem solving, decision making, and a lot of team work.

(These videos are hosted on a private channel on YouTube, and can only be accessed from Pear Tree’s blog. The videos can be made available for download from the Pear Tree website upon parental request.)
