Saving Our Shorebirds – animation day – Stage 3

Thursday 9th (Wk 3) and Monday 20th (Wk 5) AUGUST, Term 3

The South Coast is home to many threatened shorebird species including the critically endangered Hooded Plovers. This program allows students to be immersed into the world of the shorebird through photographs, an interactive iBook and discussion about the life and habitat of these local birds. The students use this knowledge to create an animation using iStopMotion on iPad to share the message of how we need to save our shorebirds from extinction. The students learn how to use iStopMotion, then create a storyboard for their animation. Props and a backdrop are made and then the animation is filmed. The animation can then be shared back at school.
