Students roll the "Story Cubes" - templates for 3 cubes included - and then they write a story, illustrate it, and produce a final, clean 12-page book. This is an instruction sheet, template for pre-production sketches, extensive rubrics, templates for the "Story Cubes" and InDesign Templates for printed and digital versions of the project. The Story cube templates can be altered for other uses as can the unique page configuration for the printed book. The project can be done completely by hand or it can be done using illustrator and printed out, or the final product can be a product viewed digitally - it is up to you and the students. Suggestions and rubrics are included for both hand-done and digitally produced.
"The AEE has taught me more than my 4-year university degree.
The courses and resources help make my classroom full of fun, colour and creativity!"
