Sequencing with Animated Gifs

Today some 2nd graders in Ms. Curfman’s class at Chamberlayne Elementary were exploring sequencing by creating animated gifs. I put a variety of folders with pictures that were out of order into their student folders. The folder topics included: Life Cycle of the White Tailed Deer (thank you Meek Mouse for the clipart!), Life Cycle of a Butterfly, Life Cycle of a Frog, Life Cycle of a Pumpkin, Jack and Jill, and How to Brush Your Teeth. Students went to the website, gifgear.com (Thank you, Tyler Hart, for introducing us to this awesome website!) and uploaded the pictures from the folder of their choice. They then had to sequence the pictures on the website. Once the pictures were sequenced, students copied the embed code and pasted it into a collaborative Google Doc so Ms. Curfman and myself could copy and paste the codes into a blog post. Check out some of their Gifs:
