Second grade students in Christine McGee’s class at Saluda Elementary are proving to be quite tech savvy.

The students have recently created a number of stop motion videos as part of projects being done in the classroom.

The effort started wth learning about the videos and how they’re made, with the final result a class video done in conjunction with learning about time. Students tried to show that a.m. doesn’t always mean bright and p.m. doesn’t always mean dark.

As part of a class study of bats, students broke into small groups and created more videos showing how some bats use echolocation. Students needed to spend a lot of time planning out their sceneries and how each piece would move and where it would go in each scene.

This project took lots of preparation, teamwork, problem solving and patience.
