The problem with the last activity I posted is that the characters can’t move any parts. There are no legs or arms to move around. This can be achieved using the PuppetWarp feature in Photoshop to pin pivot points on to an image and manipulate it that way.
This lesson below is almost exactly the same as one done by Mark Shufflebottom and Greg Hodgson as part of the Adobe Generation Pro: Animation course on the Adobe Education Exchange. If you’re interested, there is a new Animation course starting very soon here at this link https://edex.adobe.com/pd/course/animation-2016 . I highly recommend it!
Enjoy this. Leave me a comment if this is something you think you can use in your classroom!
