To create a gif like the one on this page use a version of Keynote on iPad or Mac that has the option to Export to Animated GIF.
Create a series of 5 or 6 slides with shapes similar to the ones shown below. To make the figure move try rotating or moving any of the shapes.
Find out how to rotate an object on the iPad here.
Rotation is usually around the centre – see the image below if you want to try rotating about another point using Keynote on your Mac.
