Activity Overview


Learning a new program can be difficult, but this "All About Me" activity is sure to excite students of all ages. Students can browse or search for different artwork and get to know how to manipulate images while teaching others about themselves.

Students will create an "All About Me" spider map. They can include their name, favorite subject in school, favorite hobby, favorite animal, and other favorite things! The provided template includes 5 cells, but teachers may add or take away cells to meet their students’ abilities. The headers have already been filled in, but teachers may choose different headers or leave them blank for students to fill in if they are able. The template is completely customizable to meet all needs!

Here are the five topics that will get students exploring all that the Storyboard Creator has to offer:

  1. Can you find characters that look like you and people in your family?
  2. Can you find a symbol to represent your favorite subject?
  3. Can you find a character, scene, item, or animal that represents your favorite book and/or movie?
  4. Can you find an item or character or scene to represent your favorite after school sport or hobby?
  5. Can you find a patterned background and change it to your favorite color?
  6. Can you find your favorite animal?
  7. Can you find items and a scene that represent your favorite season?

The provided example does not include any text, but teachers may want to have students explore the many different speech bubbles and fun text boxes in the Storyboard Creator. Students may also want to add description boxes using the Cell Layout feature.
