Claymation helps develop essential 21st century skills

The process of building a clay animation helps students develop thinking, collaboration,and creative skills.


To produce a claymation project, students must create an original production. They begin with a "blank slate" and translate ideas and their imagination into reality by bringing an inanimate clay character to life through a series of frames.

Problem Solving

Building a claymation in the classroom requires students to discuss, experiment, and solve a number of issues such as realizing their goals within a limited number of frames, determining what angle to use to take their pictures, and assessing how lighting and sound can affect the mood of their animation.

Self-Directed Learning

Student teams work autonomously on a claymation project while you facilitate. Students must ask questions; determine what they know and don't know, and consult "experts" on their team or on other teams.
