What this activity teaches

This teacher-led seasonal activity, adapted for the Hour of Code, introduces children to creating computer animations.

The children will create frames, add artwork and animate a simple Christmas scene

Lots of ideas for differentiation, extension and enrichment: from making a very simple animated sequence to more able pupils:

* animating backgrounds as well as characters and objects

* adding 3D effects (e.g. shadows)

* creating more frames for smoother movement

* switching backgrounds to create scene changes

* animating more than one object
