Students will create their own constellations. They will give it a name, design what it looks like, and write a backstory of how it came to be. This will be paired with Indigenous stories of constellations. Then, students use the Star Chart app to identify their own constellation and create a story that explains it. Students will use Flipgrid to create and share stories with a wider audience. Students can screen share with Flipgrid to show their constellation. Students can also import their constellations and other images into Flipgrid to have visuals as they narrate their story.
This is a lesson introducing students to storyboards and beginning to think about how to create a story to film in a future lesson. Students will work backward to write a storyboard for a short film, will brainstorm and outline their story they want to share, and will then flesh it out as a storyboard and will think about the shot the want, the audio they want to add and they will revise their lessons based on feedbakc from teachers and peers.
Students will produce a narrative about a personal experience, with a focus on the trait of organization. The text should have an inviting introduction and satisfying conclusion.
