Cycle 3 focused on Language Arts & Digital Literacy. Fourth Grade students studied myths. They read and viewed myths from many cultures, analyzed their structure and defined the genre. A myth is a story with a purpose that was told to explain how something came to be or to caution against something.
Students were then challenged to think of ways to write myths about 21st-century technology. They brainstormed lists of technology that they use on a daily basis. Working in groups, they wrote myths explaining how a chosen piece of 21st-century technology came to be. Students then published their myths as a comic using Bitstrips for Schools. We hope you enjoy their myths!
