Kelly and I did our Stop Animation project on Jackie Robinson. We are both really interested in sports and he was a very important person in baseball as well as in the fight for Civil Rights. Our video addresses the SS2H1 Standard for 2nd Grade- “The Student will read about and describe the lives of Historical People in Georgia History.” I think the use of pictures in this video help tell the story really well an provide a better understanding than if we were just reading or talking about Jackie Robinson. We kept it kind of simple because it was just for second graders, but still taught a lot about Jackie Robinson and the struggles he went through. I think our creativity shows in the music choice for this video. We worked hard to find the song we felt matched up best with our story. I think using the same cutout of Jackie’s head was also creative and helped the story flow nicely. I think young students trying to learn more about Jackie Robinson and historical figures can benefit from this video. Also, I think teachers could find it helpful to show in the classroom because it it very short and concise but gives a good summary of Jackie Robinson. I think I would tell other students that are trying to make a video to take lots of pictures!!! You can never have too many pictures. Make sure the movements are very small to make it flow smoothly and choosing the right music is very important.
