In Squirrels Working Out: Burpee, Chantal Rousseau explores the magic of animation, turning watercolour paintings into a GIF. The short video and accompanying lesson plan are filled with imaginative activities that draw from the ideas of family and design.
Developed and recorded by Emily Li, Agnes Student Docent. This video is accompanied by a lesson plan geared towards elementary school students grades 4–6.
