The fourth and fifth grade students did a fantastic job on creating their Countdown to Christmas videos. Students used Tuxpaint to create their own background image for the animation. Below is a compilation of their images made into a Christmas quilt to decorate the computer lab door.
Students inserted the image in a Keynote slide and created 3 textboxes: a number, days until, and Christmas. Students then used the Build In animation tool to animate the countdown. The 15 best animations were chosen to be featured in our Morning Announcements. You can see them by looking on this page or by checking them out on the Morning Announcements youtube channel at https://www.youtube.com/user/MorningAnnouncement/videos. Embedded below are two examples of the student created count downs.
My students and I hope you had a very Merry Christmas. Below are images of the decorations from the computer lab.
