I am working on a stop action presentation to do in my Social Studies class on the Boston Tea Party. If you do not know what stop action is, then click on the example of a YouTube clip of Tony vs. Paul.
October 4 – Starting to plan out what to do for my stop action film. My presentation is going to have the Americans getting frustrated at the British for raising the taxes up and then have a scene where it says December 16, 1773, and then it shows the American colonists dumping the loads of tea out into the Boston Harbor. I will plan to make this video at least 30 seconds long and see how I improve at this the next day.
October 5 – I decided that I was going to switch over to making a comic strip for my project because my camera having to unfortunately break the day I was going to use it. Anyways, my plan is to make a comic strip on the events that led to the Boston Tea Party occuring so people then will have background information on why the Boston Tea Party happened.
October 6 – I completed half of the comic strip, which is the part where the Tea Act occurs and the beginning to Samuel Adams and John Hancock’s plan to rebel against the British. I added the essential details to it and colored it as well. Tomorrow, I’m going to finish the project up with the second half of the comic strip colored and detailed just like the first half.
October 7 – The comic strip is officially complete! Hooray! I now am going to try to prepare myself to present my project to the class. I really am hoping I don’t mess up the presentation, which I usually do knowing how nervous I am. But I’ll be sure to try my best!
