Fourth Grade Flips!

Fourth graders combined the science of motion and the art of drawing to create flip books.  This lesson was to build upon the fourth grade science curriculum and to introduce the students to animation, a career in the art field.  

We watched some great video examples of flip books and the students brainstormed ideas. They planned and drew their idea on a storyboard to help show the progression of their story.  They drew their storyboard pictures onto index cards.  Lastly, the students designed a cover and assembled their book.  Take a look at some of the examples!  (Sorry about the sideways video....I'm still working on trying to edit!)
