Follow Animal is an exercise in which different animal figures move on the screen. The exercise can be used to practice understanding of causal relations, focusing vision and the use of eye movements.
The exercise can be performed with standard settings but you can also change the settings from the Settings button. With the standard settings the different animal figures move on the screen when you click the mouse, or press the spacebar or enter or their corresponding switches. You can return to the start menu by pressing Esc.
The settings allow you to choose:
- the animal figure and its size
- the direction in which the figure moves
- for the figure to start off with a chosen time delay
- the background color of the figure and the screen
- the speed at which the figure moves
- to use background sounds
Printed picture cards of the animal figures can be used as supplementary material to exercises for practicing such skills as making choices and considering answer alternatives or to inspire conversation (e.g. what animal is revealed from behind the leaves? what animal is moving on the screen? what do you see in the picture? which figure would you like to see? etc.)
