This project utilizes the free web based program called storybird.com. Here students can create stories on any topic, using the art work provided by storybird.
For this project, students are using storybird to tell the story of their (fictional) journey across North America. This project bundle comes with a project outline - listing the 7 components of the project (what must be included), a rubric that is aligned to social studies and ELA common core standards, and a planning guide - that walks students through the planning process of creating this story.
This web-based program is free for you as the teacher and for your students. This program allows you to set up classroom lists, organize assignments, provide feedback and even grades. If you have not checked it out, it is well worth your time.
