Spring Flowers Flipbook/Picture Book with Extra Enriching Short Stories ~ PDF versions

Spring Flowers ~ One of the story’s goals is to be like a flipbook. A flipbook is a small book that shows images of the same thing in different positions to create the illusion of movement when the pages are turned quickly. At times images are somewhat manipulated or changed to create a more dramatic or exciting animated effect. Read more.

Flipbook/Animation Story = Sequence = Goal

Spring Critters flipbooks ~
An Activity for Young Curious Minds

1) Spring Critters (Ladybug and Tadpole) flipbooks (PDF format). See files: TadpoleKid.pdf and LadybugKids.pdf

2) Print (paper: letter size/20lb) and cut (exacto-blade works best) along gray lines. In addition or optional (However, helpful when flipping through pages.), print and cut card stock flipbook backs – see files: BackPage.pdf or BackPageDetails.pdf (imagery outward).

3) Pages have numbers that show numbers one to nine. What the students/children must do is order (sequence) pages so the critter will appear as if it is moving upright in a straight line [off the page(s)]. Students or young children may need help or keep pages in order then explain idea or objective.

4) After pages have been placed in order along with card stock flipbook back: align pages to the right and staple together on the left/center side of the flipbook.

5 or 3a) Students/Children can add color and natural objects to the pages. This can be done before stapling too.

6) Last, students/children can then use their thumb and index finger simultaneously to flip through pages, therefore the illusion of movement is perceived when the pages are turned quickly.

Have Fun!
