Elementary Inquiry Questions

Q: How can we engage audiences and convey feelings through storytelling?


Gr. 1 students wondered about storytelling....and as they inquired, and after welcoming many storytellers into their classroom, they discovered many various storytelling elements and techniques (using props, acting, sequencing languages, storyboarding).

They made an attempt to retell their favorite story "Piggie and Gerald", and then, they were tasked to create their own Piggie and Gerald story using puppets. They came up with ideas on how to engage audiences (e.g. using a loud proud voice or props).

They also wrote about the feelings they wanted to convey (e.g. excitement, happiness and fun).

In the end, they learned the importance of using different voices and body language to help make stories come to life!
