Crayon Rubbing Flip Book

THIS LESSON USES THE NYC BLUEPRINT LEARNING STANDARDS.
This flip book lesson is designed to make learning about animation a more tactile, fun experience for young learners by eliminating tracing and bringing the line to life. Students will use their hands to gradually bend and reshape a line (floral wire), while recording this experience using crayon rubbings.
