Video: In this 5 minute film, Fish used to walk on land, with his long skinny legs. One day he decided he wanted to be more beautiful, and so he went to visit Water Lily hoping for a magic spell. Will Fish get his wish?
"Why Fish Swim"
was written and illustrated by a student in Grade 3, in Montreal, Canada.
Kids Stories is a collection of nine animated stories written and illustrated by children from around the world – the stories have been animated so that they ‘come alive’. Combined with viewing the videos and/or reading the accompanying picture-book, the purpose of the activities is to support the language arts with creative writing and artistic expression, promote a sharing of ideas and perspectives, and develop an awareness of the wider world.
The objectives of this activity are:
1. To introduce children to stories written and illustrated by other children in different parts of the world.
2. To give students an opportunity to relate to other young authors and illustrators.
3. To create a geographic awareness about children in other parts of the world.
4. To motivate and inspire children to write, illustrate, and share their own stories.
