Flipbooks are an excellent project to address the basics of animation. These handouts and templates will guide students and assist them in creating a basic flipbook. My classes create flipbooks with loose 3.5x4.25" paper sheets. I have a local print shop cut a ream of 8.5x11 copy paper into sixths. 60-80 pages are held in a stack with a binder clip. Some of the included templates are built with that size in mind but other sizes can be made to work as well. Handouts address such things as the structure of the books and planning the animation. Also included are figure animation sequences of common activities and a large collection of tracing templates. 60 pages in all!
