Recently, I’ve been spending some time creating animations for the teachers at my school to use as supplemental content for their lessons. Often, in subjects like biology and chemistry, concepts are best understood visually. However, the problem with animations online is often that they are either too advanced or too simple for the classroom. So, what better solution than to simply make my own?

Here’s an example of one I made about hydrogen bonding in water:

The teacher had a fantastic response from students, who appreciated being able to visualize the molecules and bonding. Plus, the teacher displayed the animation on her website so students could revisit it when studying for the test.

Do you use animations in your classroom?
