Creating GIFs with Keynote

I love the potential of Keynote and the creativity it allows for learning and teaching. I have used Keynote for storytelling, app prototyping, web design, learning journals, greenscreen, and of course GIFs.

This example shows the Water Cycle as an animation. A creative way for students to show their understanding, and if they go one step further and use screen recording, the students could even do a voice over to explain the water cycle in action.

To create the GIF, draw the background, add the shapes from the shape library. Then duplicate the slide and move the shape to show the cycle. Add animated text as needed. Continue duplicating and moving the shapes until the cycle is complete. When finished, export as a GIF.
