KINEOGRAPH

MATH
The human eye and brain can only process 10 to 12 separate images per second, retaining an image for up to a fifteenth of a second. How many images can the eye and brain process during a 30 minute cartoon?

HISTORY
The kineograph was invented by John Linnett in the late 1800’s. Walt Disney is famous for creating cartoon illustrations, discuss how technology has effected the design of animations.

LANGUAGE ARTS
Cartoons can be a satirical or humorous drawing, and incorporate the study of language, including sociolinguistics (words used in social norms), and dialectology or regional differences in a language. Create a unique kineograph that reflects a specific cultural norm.

SCIENCE
The animation works because of something known as the persistence of vision. Discuss how the brain and eye connect when viewing optical illusions.

EXTENSION
Try adding sound effects to your animation, similar to the techniques used on a foley stage. Record and play back the finished animations during a special movie day with popcorn and credit lines.
