21st Century Skills: Creativity – Writing
Students researched bats and birds and their life cycles. Students read the story Stellaluna. They created an alternate ending to Stellaluna in which the bats find a bird egg and raises the bird. They applied the information they learned in their research to help them rewrite the story. After they finished their stories, they made a digital book in which they created the illustrations and recorded their stories using Photostory 3.
21st Century Skill
