We used the medium of animation to work with year 5 pupils on the topic of changing states of matter.
The project was part of our Creative Partnerships programme in Mellor Community Primary School.
The students worked in groups around the theme of the changing states of matter, ie liquid to solid or solid to gas, a topic that formed part of their science lessons.
They explored the changes through making animations using different techniques, eg stop frame, drawing and photography, depending on which they thought was the most appropriate for exploring and illustrating the process.
They were used in the classroom to start discussions in lessons about “changes of state.” The final animations were shown to the rest of the year group and then the rest of the school, on a large screen that could be viewed by parents and children.Science
