This is a super-fun way to stretch students’ imaginations and have them write imaginative stories.
*Instructions for teachers
Let students randomly draw a setting, a character, and a conflict from a jar or bag ... then watch their imaginations soar as they compose a story from the elements they drew. You can make it competitive by allowing a certain number of trades; you can have students work in pairs or groups if you wish; or do a whole-class story -- there are many options.
