Global Citizenship

What does it mean to be a global citizen?

I think that being a global citizen means:

• Spending time learning about the world as a whole. 

• Learning about the ways that money, culture, technology, and the environment affect the world

• Learning about and respecting different people and cultures in the world 

• Sharing our knowledge and bettering the understanding of others

• Supporting and encouraging others 

• Providing help even though you live far away (listening to them, giving advice)

• Sharing our own cultures with others (music, activities, events) 

• Being active in our own community and making it a better place to live

Stop Motion

I'm currently in the process of creating my stop motion.

 I finished the planning process and the development of my idea. 

I have a solid idea and a story board of what my stop motion will be.

 I also gathered materials that I will need, including crayons, the main requirement to make my stop motion. 

More updates will follow.

My stopmotion idea is to use multicoloured crayons to create different patterns and shapes. 
My plan is to have the crayons leaving the box and moving across the page to create different designs.
 I will use different colours to create the illusion of the crayons flashing colour. 

This is my quick storyboard:

Ian Padgham is a very talented video producer and artist. He is known for his amazing stop motion animation clips that he posts on vine. His vines are all very creative and some of them have been made for very well known brands.

I personally love his work, I'm always left wondering how he manages to create his vines. I encourage all of you to view his work.
