In the middle of his DIY.org stop motion camp we made a field trip to the movies, to see "Shaun the Sheep." He loved this classic claymation with no dialogue.
|On the way out of the movies, Liam stopped to play in this ad for "The Good Dinosaur."|
Afterward we got to run around Universal Citywalk and play in the fountains.
We've built a set and characters and will soon storyboard an episode of "The Spiffyman Show." We can use it to work on storytelling and build on his growing animation skills.
Yesterday, after two weeks of study in marine biology, we attended the special homeschool day at the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach.
It was amazing to watch Liam enter the main hall, take in the full-size replica of a blue whale suspended from the cieling and shout, "Oh MY GOD!" He also enjoyed petting the sharks. Whenever he managed to feel one passing by, he'd say, "SCORE." And he had fun providing a sound track for this shark tank (until the incredibly timed, but way-too-loud ending - see video).
