Student Activities

Children use the story mountain with generic helping hints to create a story.  Big chalk boards are set aside below the mountain for the children to create their own notes and to build up a story.  There are several boards to help the children separate their ideas and help consolidate what they need in each section of their writing.

NPC's are set up behind the children's chalk boards as help guides, children can also add in their own hints and tips for next time or for other users.  Each story mountain can be adapted to reflect different types of writing and different genres.

This is designed to allow children for some collaborative work in their writing and give them a different way to plan their writing.

Performance Expectations

Children are expected to plan a piece of writing using the help provided within the world.

Children are also expected to add some help to the NPC's and to the key words and hints board.
