Motion toys

The third graders at Hoffer are experimenting with animation. They are creating their own movements on various early motion devices. They are learning and making zoetropes, phenakistascopes, flipbooks, and thaumatropes. Sizing and sequencing are important parts of the learning experience. With their knowledge of low tech animation they are now creating animation with video.
