Bringing Cells to Life

When students have the opportunity to create movies, they get to show what they now. Below is a stop-motion video created by 8th graders to show cell formation. Using play dough the students designed each phrase, took pictures and composed into a movie. This hands-on activity not only allowed students to visualize cell formation but also required students to use higher order thinking skills to CREATE!
