Adorable Elementary Schoolers make Amazing Animation about Evolution

The elementary school students at William Fox Elementary School and the Patrick Henry School of Science & Art helped animation student Tyler Rhodes in making an animation that teaches evolution.  Going through 6 phases of evolution and more than 400 drawings, Rhodes engaged the students by making the project into a “telephone”-esque game.  The children started with a drawing of a salamander, and as it was redrawn and redrawn, subtly mutating it.

This is super educational and I’m sure those kids had a blast seeing their work form the animation, but I have to admit I’m a little peeved I haven’t though of this myself!  Who needs motion frames and background art when you can have children do it for you, 400 times over!  Brilliant…
