Rebecca Law the Publishing Manager at Rising Stars has been exploring the MonkeyJam animation tool which would work really well in Unit 2.4: We are time travellers - Animating history as well as Unit 3.3 in Year 3, We are animators - making a cartoon.
MonkeyJam is a digital penciltest and stopmotion animation program. It is designed to let you capture images from a webcam, camcorder, or scanner and assemble them as separate frames of an animation. You can also import images and sound files already on your computer.
Take a look for yourself at http://monkeyjam.org
Here is Rebecca's poignant tale of a sad/happy eraser which she created using MonkeyJam - you can find out more about Rebecca's day in her post on the blog.
