# How to make Simple Animation Devices

A variety of simple devices can be made that allow you to explore persistence of vision, and experiment with primitive animation techniques. I will discuss four of these devices: Thaumatropes, Flipbooks, Phenakistoscopes and Zoetropes.

# Motion Challenge

Students match given position v. time data; then create corresponding velocity v. time and acceleration v. time graphs. Similarly, they create velocity v. time and position v.
