metamorphosis - The German Chain Reaction 2014

And now -in the final year of our participation in this wonderful project-
for something completely different.   :-)

An idea has rumbled about at the back of our minds right since we finished last year's edition of the ECR project: And here we are, this time with a lot of (un)real (com)motion. It's all about STOP and MOTION.

In our set of technical chain reactions you can follow a character transforming into different shapes on its way through the "worlds in boxes" which our 1st to 6th graders built during their winter holidays.
Fittingly, our video is entitled metamorphosis.

And as Andreas, the ingenious parent who coordinated all our chain reactions, likes to say:
"We certainly can't do without fire!" Hence the hot showdown.

Please enjoy this year's entry from Freie Schule Kassel:


  1. Hi Steffen and German team,

    The pupils in my classroom enjoyed watching your chain reaction a lot! They think it is funny and they liked the fire, so Andreas was completely right about that!

    We noticed a whole lot of preparation must have gone into the preparation of this video! You created a whole new world with this entry, so congratulations!

    Excellent editing too!

    Kind regards,


  2. We love your idea!
    You are very impressive because every year you find a new and wonderful idea.

    French Team
