Animating the Hamster

Läs denna text på svenska>>

Creative School 2015-16
Time: 50 hours in November and December -15
Theme: PROCESS FICTION
Technology: ANIMATION
Primary Target Audience: GRADE 5-6
Secondary Target Group: PRESCHOOL AND GRADE 1-4
Teacher: JOSEFIN TORP
The Mission:

"We want to work in a new way with literature. The older students, who are in grade 6-9 in the Ovanåker Municipality, will immerse in fiction. They will read the texts, then they will present what they've read in their own films (including animation) and/or dance. The result will be presented to younger students and published on the web. "

The Process:
Students in Viksjöfors all read the same picture book for children; ”The hamster is gone” by Anders Palmaer, with illustrations by Ingela P Arrhenius.

Students then were divided in groups. The groups used different animation program to detect the possibilities of the technology. They practiced and experimented happily and prepared the recording.

But at first, they had to write summaries of the contents of the book. The writing part of the project was not as popular … (But Rasha put a lot of effort into her text; every word should be written down and correctly spelled. See the result below!)
