Animation (Mini worlds)

Project Published 4/29/14 Last updated on 5/16/18

This is a unit of work that some year 4 students (9 yo) worked on as part of a unit of work on 'mini worlds' (reptiles and amphibians). The students were instructed to make an animation explaining how the reptile or amphibian of their choice was able to survive in its environment. The program that is included was an initial draft that the final project developed from. In the draft program it shows a duration of 6 weeks although this is only due to the time allocated, it could be completed in a class in as little as two days with young students. (it is pretty easy and fun to do)

I admire your year 4 students doing the project. Their early exposure to animation will nurture their imagination and creativity.​

HI Brett,

This is a great resource - thanks for sharing. One note - the final project .html file seems to be empty - I downloaded it but when I open it nothing appears (and the above resource list the file is appearing as 0.00 MB).

Hope to see more of your work.
