Wow! With K-4, the kids will learn another great skill which is often
neglected these days - Patience. Traditional clay animation requires
that the clay figures be moved in very small increments, and the camera
be capable of filming very brief, split-second intervals (I guess he
could use a digital still camera, take snapshots, and then string them
together in Movie Maker).
It sounds like a fantastic project. Please let the list know how it
goes, and whether the results may be viewed somewhere on the web.
