What strikes me about this little clip, from an educational perspective, is how easy it is to present our most familiar stories from Tanach in the most original and compelling ways. Using animation and a novel take on the story, Adam and Eve come alive in a way that no Judaics teacher can possibly imagine.
The ability to use ones creativity in studying yiddishkeit is SO IMPORTANT these days - students are growing up in a tech-driven world that enables the ability to visually express ones imagination and creativity with minimal training. or start-up costs. Why should the exploration of Torah and Judaism be any different?
To this end, my sixth-and-seventh grade students have engaged in a year-long exploration of Tanach using a variety of multimedia techniques, from Toondoo to Xtranormal, to filming puppet shows a la Potter Puppet Pals - I'd like to think the experience has been a meaningful one for them.
After viewing the clip, can you think of any other stories or teaching in Tanach that can benefit from a similar treatment?
