I packaged up this creativity challenge lesson that I did with my 3rd graders inspired by Andy Martin's Plasticine Rhythm on vimeo. He had a bunch of creative ways to use stop motion animation and clay to make fun illusions set to music that included hands interacting with the objects. I simplified and structured one simple illusion to make it accessible for my students and challenged them to find a creation solution collaboratively. Here is a peek at how this turned out.
It was a huge success! So, I put all the resources, examples, handouts, links, materials and lists in one resource so others can give it a try. Explore here.
