Activity Overview


Use Storyboard That to get students thinking about stories. Give them a prompt to work with, or start a storyboard for them to finish. There are many amazing scenes and characters on Storyboard That to stir up imagination! The prompt for the example below is: “The snow kept coming down…”

Depending on the level of your students, you may want to enforce a narrative arc, or you may just want the story to make sense sequentially. This particular activity is good for expanding “quick write” ideas, or boiling down a story idea to its major points. It is also good to get stuck students started. Present several finished stories to see the different directions students took!

Stick with eight cells or less to avoid long and complicated stories. A fun, but challenging, alternative would be to have one student or one group complete one cell of the storyboard, and then pass the storyboard on. Similar to passing a story stick or writing a class story, this will challenge students to make sense of the previous cells and channel their creativity!
