Plastic is everywhere!

Plastic is everywhere. A lot of it ends up in the ocean. Most plastics in the ocean break up into very small particles. These small plastic bits are called "microplastics." Other plastics are intentionally designed to be small. They're called microbeads and are used in many health and beauty products. They pass unchanged through waterways into the ocean. Aquatic life and birds can mistake microplastics for food. Research is being conducted. But there's still much we don't know.
In 2015, the U.S. banned the use of microbeads. But microplastics are still a huge problem. You can help keep plastic out of the ocean. Remember: Reduce. Reuse. Recycle.

Microbeads are tiny pieces of polyethylene plastic added to health and beauty products, such as some cleansers and toothpastes

Plastic is the most prevalent type of marine debris found in our ocean and Great Lakes. Plastic debris can come in all shapes and sizes, but those that are less than five millimeters in length (or about the size of a sesame seed) are called “microplastics.”

Microplastics come from a variety of sources, including from larger plastic debris that degrades into smaller and smaller pieces. In addition, microbeads, a type of microplastic, are very tiny pieces of manufactured polyethylene plastic that are added as exfoliants to health and beauty products, such as some cleansers and toothpastes. These tiny particles easily pass through water filtration systems and end up in the ocean and Great Lakes, posing a potential threat to aquatic life.

Stop Motion - Pig Hunting

Pig Hunting

WALT: Create a stop motion animation to tell a story about how we celebrate Matariki.

Success Criteria:  I will

*Use small movements and take lots of photos.
*Work as a team with my group - so our hands don't show.
*Tell a story that is interesting to our audience.

It was really hard to keep the ipad still when taking photos, sometimes our arms would get sore.  Also, the music that we had cut out through the movie and we weren't quite sure how to fix that.

I think we did really well at telling our story, and our props and characters were done well.  We also worked as a team I was taking the photos.  Myer would say, "clear" which told me that her hands were out of the shot, so I could take a photo.  Sometimes her hand got in the way though.

I really liked creating this stop motion. It was lots of fun.
