Or any language and content area!
How it works:
-Put students in groups and give them each a sheet (or 1 per group)
-Give them a topic for their story
-Show them one word from the chapter vocabulary
-Students use the word in a sentence. Teacher will check writing and grammar.
-Next word is displayed. Students will write another sentence using the new word. But, they are trying to create a story by connecting to the previous sentence.
At the end, the students write their sentences together to create a story.
Variation: Let them rearrange their sentences to best create a story.
Follow-up activity: Trade with another group and draw the story.
