I love the Animation Chefs and how they try to teach animating skills to kids, so I thought I would bring them to my middle school students. I gave my kids time to watch their videos, learn some tips and tricks, and apply them to their own video creations. It took nearly two weeks worth of classes, but today they showed off their final projects. (And I might add that I'm kinda proud of how they look in the end.)
