Great Zoetrope Idea



I saw this really cute project on the Craft: blog about how to make a zoetrope out of coffee can. I think this would be a great project for 4th or 5th grade. I just need to come up with something other than a coffee can to use. I really loved the little animation that the artist made. Here is the full article. I’ll let you know if I use the lesson.

  1. Hello,

    I thought you might be interested to know about my new website, The Wheel of Life. The subject is 19th-century sequence-picture optical toys: zoetropes and such.

    The Home page is here:


    this links through to the main essays.

    The Contents list is here:


    this links to other pages.

    There’s lots still to do to get the basic website finished (links to image sources, more main essays, etc) and then I’ll try to add something every month.

    I hope you enjoy The Wheel of Life as it develops, and I’m always pleased to hear comments, and learn new things about the subject.

    Best wishes,

    Stephen Herbert
