TGJ3 - Students creatively utilize safe, easy-to-find, found / recycled materials to create characters with simple tools (glue guns) and then animate an environmentally-themed story with digital cameras and stop-motion techniques, assembled in Adobe Premiere editing software. This can be done as a whole class group project, or in smaller groups of 3-4 students. Advanced extensions may also include green-screening techniques for compositing, and original music creation in Adobe Audition software, recording of voices and original sound effects or use of a sound effects library. Project names have also been, "Lost and Found" and "Ecomation" in the past. Brainstorming, problem-solving, recognition of materials that are safe to use, decision-making, digital camera use, edit software skills.
