To celebrate the end of the year, 1st and 2nd graders who finished their projects early made a collaborative music video. Each student contributed a 2 second clip of themselves dancing over a video of a radial design. The music video that inspired us was also an artistic piece created with rotoscoping.

Related idea: What if your art did a dance?
That's right! What if students made art that could move through the magic of stop motion? These little movement videos could be layered over kaleido free backgrounds and put in a collaborative dance movie too. First you would need to do the stop motion animation in front of green screen. The subject could be, for example, their cardboard whirligigs. See this post for how to make them.
