In this lesson students will use wick to recreate the famous bouncing ball animation. The Wick website describes itself as a free browser-based toolkit for making basic animations and interactive applets for the web. It's built to make it as simple as possible to get some images and sounds together, make them interactive, and publish your project online.
Wick is a hybrid of an animation tool and a coding environment, heavily inspired by similar tools such as Flash, HyperCard, and Scratch. It was developed in response to a growing need for such a tool for the modern web.
This is a great way to introduce animation. The results can be downloaded as an animated gif and html file viewable by browsers such as Google Chrome. This is Google Classroom ready and tested on Chromebooks. This is a step by step tutorial. Students need no prior knowledge of animation or Wick.
The lesson is provided as a pdf and with a link to the fully editable Google Slides Presentation. There is no software to install and it is completely free to use Wick.
