Part of Lesson Plan: Aesops Flash Fable
Activity Overview / Details
Once students are comfortable navigating in Flash and using the different tools, have them create their first scene on their own.
- Review their story with them to make sure they are comfortable with selecting the main characters and that they understand the story well enough to illustrate it.
- As an optional step, have students create a storyboard consisting of all of the major scenes of the story. This can be done as a traditional storyboard or with index cards. Review how to make a storyboard with students if you choose to add this task.
- Have them start in Flash by creating the main character or protagonist of the story.
- Once they have the main character, have students create their first scene. This is the first scene of the fable. Students should create (draw) all the characters and objects for the scene seperately and then import or create a background in which the scene is set. The background can be a bitmap image that they convert by tracing in Flash (by hand or using the Bitmap Tace function).
