How teachers use HUE Animation
Teachers around the world are using HUE Animation Studio to inspire and engage their students. Here are just a few examples of how teachers are integrating stop motion into their lessons.
- Kristen Poindexter, a 15 year veteran kindergarten teacher from Indiana, USA, leads the charge in inspiring future scientists and mathematicians. She uses stop motion animation as an interactive way to teach her students about tadpoles.
- Teacher Cindy Price, a kindergarten teacher from Delaware taught her students about the rainforest using her HUE Animation kit. For tips and tricks on how to use the camera as well as an outline of her lesson, be sure to read her blog, Mrs Price’s Kindergators.
- Heidi Neels regularly uses animation to teach her first grade class a wide range of skills and subjects. Take a look at this lesson about the Earth, Moon and Sun. Here, she illustrates the Moon orbiting around the Earth. She has also used stop motion to teach them about composite shapes as well as how to tell time on an analogue clock.
