My second graders, the Brainwaves, made this stop motion animation as part of the Monster Project, which is organized by Terry Smith of Hannibal, MO. We read Where the Wild Things Are. Next, we made a flow chart and wrote a summary of the story. Then we made a story board. We wrote the script. We had to estimate how many pictures we would need at 10 frames per second to fit with our narration. Some of us worked on the project during lunch and gym. We want to thank. Garret Ferguson, of Lafayette Regional School in Franconia, NH. Garret came to Bridgeport, CT last year and taught us how to make a stop motion video. Garret this one's for you and "wild things" everywhere.

Brilliant. Love it and have highlighted it as my 'Video of the Week" for this week. Well done, and all credit to your little team of animators. They've done an incredible job.

I used a free download from All you need is a webcam. It's very easy to use for stop motion or time lapse video.
