SLSSP Quad Cup: Virtual Boccia Competition



This afternoon we are going to make a flip book of a train travelling. Below is a bullet point list of what to do but I have also included a video of Liz Pichon (author of Tom Gates) making a flip book from post it notes to give you the basic idea of how a flip book works and some ideas you can practise before starting on your train design.  The key is keeping your design simple so you can replicate it multiple times on each page.  I have also recorded a demonstration video with a train design.  You can choose a steam train (which would be really effective with the steam cloud moving along!), an electric train, tube train or a bullet style train like mine.


1.  Create a stack of paper pieces the same size.  I cut 3 A4 pieces of paper into 9 equal pieces.

2.  I stapled or clipped the pages together at this point, but you may wish to keep them separate until the end for ease of drawing.

3.  Remember the far edge of your paper won't be seen.

4.  Draw a small front view of your train and maybe a tree or hill in your background.

5.  On the next page, draw exactly the same train and background but move it all along by a small amount so you can see a bit more of your train.  Make sure you keep the details the same.

6.  Repeat this over many pages.

This video may help you try a simple version of a flip book to start with, as it shows how to move each image a small amount on each page.
