I thought this was great.  I started making a project that I could use with my 1st graders on animating their map of their street.  As I was going through it, I decided that it might be a little hard for my 1st graders.  I changed to my 3rd graders so that they could use it during their mapping lesson.  I will use it as a small group project in one of my centers.  I also thought this would be a great tool to use with the seasons.  I could set up trees and the students could add to the tree based on the season and then see the animation of the season.  Will try to include this in my lessons at some point. my-street-map-animation
