Google CS First: Animation

CS First is a free program that offers computer science projects for students aged 9-14 who sign up to be part of the club. In the animation project, students move through eight animation activities that develop computer science skills. Activities include animating a monster's emotions, creating a side-scrolling game, animating a dialogue between friends, and designing an animated logo. Each activity is supported by a video and project starters which students use to remix and create their own stories. Lesson plans accompany the student activities.
