A Cinderella Story (Grade 2)
Students will be integrating social studies cultural awareness with cultural stories of Cinderella.
Students will listen to the Charles Perrault version of Cinderella and identify the main characters, plot and conflict. They will read another version and identify similarities and differences of the two stories. They will create Venn diagrams to look at similarities and differences of their own school cultures and then use Venn diagrams to look at similarities and differences of Cinderella stories. With this information, they will create their own Cinderella story.
Create a Book (Grade 3-6)
Students will pick out the main theme for the book and discuss the elements used to make up the
story. They will use the iPad App Story Creator to illustrate and write their own story. They will
be learning how to take a paper illustration and put it into a digital story and add their own text. This can be adapted to 4-6 grades.
