My 6th grade students studied a unit on Japan so I figured they could collaborate to create a piece of Japanese inspired animation (Anime) by using @redsoftware ‘s app: Animation Creator
In the past, I have done Manga work with my students, where they study the art of that time period while they learn about it in their sixth grade Social Studies class.
I wanted my students to utilize the Animation Creator app before they left me for the year, as I had some great examples in the past when my students made Greek Myth animations
If you would like to do something along this line, or a lesson on Anime, you can check out this Prezi that is a halfway conversion from my original Powerpoint with some elements copied from Lori Ingham’s Prezi
Thanks so much Heather Gale for doing such a great job and featuring my students in the Horry Indepent article. It is currently on the newstands now or check out their website here
And if you would like to check out the artwork that my students made using the app, you can check out my previous Posterous page HERE
