Create a moving lesson in animation with this two-sided thaumatrope.
Students will “flip out” over their handmade thaumatrope.
thaumatrope illustrates animation of two images. Because of the optical illusion of “persistence of vision,” you will see both images at once when you turn the thaumatrope. Discussing animation and how it works through the persistence of vision helps explain how motion pictures are made. The eye holds on to an image while a new image is also registering when turning a thaumatrope.
The teacher will die-cut the materials for student use prior to the lesson.
