How to replicate this animation in blender? making the transition from Max to blender

Hi, I made this simple animation in 3D max at home, but at work I only have access to blender. It appears to be really simple but without procedural objects (and the ability to animate them) in blender I can’t figure out how to achieve this: :no:
