Monkey Jam is a Great Way to Do Stop Motion Animation

There is a free downloaded program called "Monkey Jam" that lets you and your students make stop motion animation films (with a webcam or by importing images from your computer) and then you can put your film into Movie Maker to edit it and add titles, captions, narrations, effects and transitions.  There are many stop motion animation programs out there (I won't mention them here) that can not do what Monkey Jam can do.
With Monkey Jam, you can also have different 'layers'. This means that you can have more than 1 animation/film occuring at the same time in the 1 film (if that makes sense!?).
To download Monkey Jam, go to http://monkeyjam.org/ .  The program has a good help section on the main program screen that will help you out.
A good tip is to change the FPS speed to "3" when students are learning to do stop motion as then they can see how the stop motion concept works (otherwise the film will go to fast for them to see what is happening if it is set to 25 fps).
Here's a good online tutorial to learn Monkey Jam from:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPcc7T5BI4Q
