Movie bugs

Movie bugs incursion

Science and Technology, English

Animate an invertebrate.

Movie bugs is an amazing literacy focused multi-day Stage 1 incursion that will introduce students to stop motion animation using an iPad.

Movie bugs runs over two separate days.

The first visit to your school includes a hands-on investigation of the invertebrates found in your school. A few weeks later Field of Mars staff will lead your students through the creation of a stop motion animation focusing on the features, habitats or life cycles of invertebrates found during the first incursion.

The animation will be based on the script, storyboard and invertebrate models developed by the students in class from templates provided by FIeld of Mars EEC.
