We collaborated with Adventurers 3 to make a large wall hanging.
We investigated the properties of rocks. Testing for: permeability (waterproof), durability (scratch test) and density (floating). We asked- Are all rocks the same? We learned that they are not. We also learned that rocks are formed in different way. Rocks are formed over time by:
igneous - from volcanoes
sedimentary - from layers
metamorphic - from changes by heat and pressure
We made zoetropes, which were an early form of animation.
We used stop motion animation to create a short video. This group planned their 'shots' aiming for 12 photos making 12 frames per second. We learned that animation is a skillful and time-consuming activity. Maybe we'll produce the next Nick Park!
