- The History of Animation – Incomplete, yet detailed.
- History of Animation: Before Disney – A short illustrated article with some very useful vocabulary. I recommend you do google searches for the words “thaumatrope,” “phenakistoscope,” and “zeotrope.”
- Jack and Beverly’s Persistence of Vision – Lots of pictures of collectibles that use the principle of “persistence of vision” to create the illusion of movement.
- ZOOM . printables . activities | PBS Kids – A variety of cool activities saved as .pdf files, including more than one animation project in the “Five Senses” section.
