  2. watch it of course because it really is awesome

Last but not least, please *SHARE*! Every vote counts! Thank you for helping her!!!

I plan on using this short video for an intro to Goal Setting.  But it also can be used to show students how to make stop motion videos to show what they have learned as a final project. Kids love making videos!  There is a free ap in the iTunes store that my 10 year old son uses all the time called Stop Motion Studio. Imagine students showing a random act of kindness or a conflict resolution scene or how to stop bullying using legos, their favorite toys to play with! I plan on uploading them to YouTube, create a QR code that can be scanned to take someone directly to the link, and then have business cards (home-made on my printer) to have ready to hand out.  If someone is in need of help, they can scan the business card and watch a lego short video on the topic.  It could be a great conversation starter and great way for the kids making the videos to practice important social skills!
