2Animate a Giant Peach – 2Simple in your Classroom Part 2

Following on from our post earlier in the week about how schools are using our software, I bring you a further example from Colin Hill. You may remember that Colin is currently working on Roald Dahl texts with his class of year 3/4 children at Birkdale Primary School, Southport.  

 Yesterday he was working on James and the Giant Peach and he challenged his children to create an animated sequence of the peach falling off the tree and rolling into the ocean. He used 2Animate to do this and he very kindly sent me some examples below.  

Colin tells us:  

 We are currently reading loads of Roald Dahl books at the moment in my Year 3/4 class, with the children totally enchanted with the stories. Our current focus is on ‘James and the Giant Peach’. We were reading about the Peach falling off the tree and rolling down and down ending up in the ocean. I therefore challenged the children to make a sequence (using 2Animate) showing the journey of the peach.  Their attempts were very impressive, and the children really enjoyed the challenge – working in pairs.The files were saved as Animated Gifs, and then I converted them into SWF files, which have been included into the Myebook. Here the children are able to share their 2Simple work to their parents, as well as the wider world. We hope you enjoy our work

  Here are the animated gif versions
(Note to bloggers and geeks – animated gifs will work in wordpress if imported at full size)
