Language Arts/Digital Literacy Gr. 4 @ Monmouth Junction

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!
