After viewing, ask students to offer their questions, comments, reactions and responses to the video.

Activity Instructions:

  1. Create a simple story. Then, begin to illustrate the story by drawing a simple picture onto each paper strip, showing a slight bit of movement/change of position in each consecutive drawing. Repeat drawing a picture on each strip of paper until the story is completed.
  2. When you are finished, bind the right side of the papers on the 2" side with a rubber band and then place a binder clip over it for extra binding.
  3. Flip your book page by page to see the pictures move, bringing your story to life!
