This lesson idea is from the amazing Tricia Fuglestad at http://drydenart.weebly.com/1/post/2013/06/animation-gtvideo-gtgif-gtpost.html. I followed her lesson by showing "the Lima Bean Monster" video on Tumblebook. We also used Tricia's monster handout idea sheets for ideas. I focused on the learning objective: I can create a figure in action (literally). My students absolutely loved this project and found the app easy to use when creating their monster. We all love the DoInk feature of auto-fill to easily and quickly color in their monster. We wish our other iPad creation apps had this feature! Thanks as always to Tricia Fuglestad for sharing her brilliant lesson ideas!
Check out my YouTube I've been teaching elementary Art for 18 years the last eight at Becky-David in the Francis Howell School District. Teaching Art is a great job and I absolutely love it! My job is made easier by all the wonderful Art teachers out there who share their ideas and "secrets" with me personally and through the internet. Thank you!
