Product Description
Learning about Animation teaches students the history and basic concepts of animation prior to them creating their own utilizing Adobe Edge Animate. Another animation program could be substituted, but would require some changes to the directions for those portions of the unit.

Students being by doing guided research about the history of animation and presenting their findings in a PowerPoint or Prezi. Next, they learn about the twelve principles of animation by completing a worksheet. There is also a quiz over this material. With this knowledge about animation, students are ready to start creating their own. A short lesson on basic animation in Adobe Edge Animate with students first watching the teacher create a bouncing ball and then completing it themselves from written directions and a tutorial, followed by another practice hands-on activity to add to and reinforce skills, leads to the culminating activity of the unit – to create a cartoon using their skills in Adobe Edge Animate.
