Fall Time-lapse - A Video Project
The idea is to take one picture every day to document the changes in the foliage as we progress through autumn from the first few orange leaves to full-blown autumn foliage colors to the drab brown we see after in the winter.
Here's how your students could create their own autumn foliage time-lapse videos.
1. Take one picture per day of the same view or of one singular tree.
Using a cell phone is probably the best tool for this because students rarely go anywhere without one.
2. Upload the pictures to a Google Drive folder.
It only takes one tap to move photos from a phone phone to a Google Drive folder labeled "Fall foliage." If This Then That has a recipe for doing this automatically from Android phones and from iPhones.
3. After four to six weeks, upload photos to JellyCam or Stop Motion Animator and create your timelapse.
JellyCam is a free video editing program for Windows and Mac users. You can easily adjust the duration of each frame and easily add a soundtrack to your video. Click here for a video about using JellyCam. Stop Motion Animator is a free tool for creating stop motion movies on Chromebooks.
