In tech, we did a stop motion unit. The big project in the unit was to make a stop motion scene / story with a group. I did one with Mae, and I really liked it.
The idea for the scene was sustainability, so everyone had a sustainability goal we could pick from. We picked hunger, which involves the problem of world hunger and having enough food. Our story was about two families who led very different lives.
Family 1 had money, and food on the table every day. Family 2, on the other hand, lived on the streets and had to scavenge for a meal. When they met each other, they were confused at first, neither understanding the other’s way of life. However, as they became friends, family 1 helped family 2. They also helped other families who were in the same situation by building a community garden and having a food drive.
In the end, everything worked out and I liked our final stop motion. It took a lot of patience to move the people and objects on by one, but we did it. And also, something technical happened with one of our scenes and Mae accidentally deleted it, but we redid it and it turned out okay. I think this project helps promote group work and patience, and also teaches an important idea about sustainability.
