Team 211 tells animal stories incorporating researched facts

Students participated in a 1 week long Li’l Stories Lab, where they collaborated, created, captured, and shared stories. They had a lot of fun researching an animal and creating animal stories incorporating the facts they had gathered from their research. Students captured their stories and shared their stories with their friends. Students studied elephants, lions, or monkeys, learned new vocabulary, and practiced critical thinking, communication and collaborating with friends. Here are Team 211’s stories from February of 2017:
