The grade 4-7 classes attended the Animating History Workshop at the the Museum of Vancouver on November 7. They investigated the 1907 Riot that took place in Vancouver during a time of hostility towards Asian immigrants. In this workshop, the students discussed reasons why events like the 1907 Riot occurred and how society can move away from such violence and towards peace. They learned how to organize their ideas through story board planning, skills involving team work, design strategies and the use of stop motion generated animation. Please watch and enjoy the grade 4-7 collaborative finished animation!
