How did the electric eel get his electricity? Why do camels have humps? These important questions will soon be answered by the 6th Grade at St. Louis!
6th grade has recently begun a project that truly reflects how art can be a starting point for incorporating STEM into the classroom. Our Claymation projects involve writing skills and technology as well as using our creative minds to design sets and characters. Each group of 6th graders will write a "Why Story," a type of folktale that explains how a certain trait or characteristic came to be. They will then use modeling clay and animation techniques to create a short stop-motion film.
Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead!
