During our discussion of film history, we talked about the first forms of animation-one of which being flip books. I showed them some video of flip books in action and had them create a 15 frame storyboard to outline their flip book. The story had to develop, have a beginning, middle, and end and be hand drawn. Only images, no words. The kids had a lot of fun creating their own flip books, and were pretty impressed with this Sonic the Hedgehog flip book!
