StopMotion Superhero Transformations

If you’ve listened to any of the podcasts I’ve been on, or heard me speak at a conference or webinar, or read my blog, then you know I love to have students write and create in my math classroom. One project that I particularly love is the Transformation Comic activity. This year, I wanted to step it up a notch and make the transformations more visible, so I had the students turn their comic into a stop motion video. I posted about making stop motion videos on my Infinitely Teaching blog using Tall Tweets. For this project I used Screencastify and had my students manually move their comic book characters around.

When I surveyed my students at the end of the project, their favorite parts were using  Bitmoji (which was optional), writing the story, and many said the LOVED making the movie. One student said that making the movie helped her understand the transformation better. YAY! We used part of a class period for students to share their videos. They were very proud. So was I!

Here are a few of the movies and their original comics.

Comic 1          Comic 2          Comic 3          Comic4          Comic 5

I would love for you to share on Twitter if you do this activity with your students!
