Grade 8 Video Animations

Grade 8C have been learning about Biomes in their Geography classes and were tasked with creating RSA-style animations to give a general overview of their Biome (including location, climate and biodiversity) and to describe what impacts humans are having on the biome.

RSA-style animations have become a popular method of presenting information in a fun and informative visual form. The RSA Animate series was conceived as an innovative, accessible and unique way of illustrating and sharing the world-changing ideas from the RSA's free public events programme. With millions of views and thousands of comments, fans and subscribers, RSA Animates have revolutionised the field of knowledge visualisation whilst spreading the most important ideas of our time.

Students worked together in small groups and took on roles such as a botanist (plant expert), zoologist (animal expert), and meteorologist (weather expert), geographer (map and area expert), cartoonist, camera person and narrator.
