This year many of you will be working on digital storytelling projects. Whether the stories we create are in groups, as a class, or individually, we will be able to use technology to tell some really awesome stories! So, to inspire us, letʻs take a look at a couple stories that were written by kids.
Watch the videos below!




Now, please turn to the person next to you and talk to each other using the following questions as a guide:
What did you like about the stories?
Which one did you like better? Why?

Now, in a comment on this post, tell me the answer to the following:
If you wrote a story that was about a really interesting main character, who would that main character be?
