Duration: Five 45-minute sessions Description: Students use Kid Pix to illustrate Goldilocks and the Three Bears (a culminating activity for a unit on fairy tales and Kid Pix).
Goals: Children will create a class big book of their own version of Goldilocks . Children will use Kid Pix to illustrate each page of the book.
- many versions of Goldilocks
- Kid Pix
- laminating machine
- book binder
- chart paper
Procedure: Children are gathered as a whole class and plan their version of Goldilocks . The teacher writes their ideas on chart paper. These ideas are then written into story format, revised and edited as a whole class. The story is broken into pages, and each child (or pair) is given a page to illustrate. They are encouraged to use as many of the tools in Kid Pix as they can to create their pages (including the shift and shift/option keys to make the different sized objects needed for the tale). Assessment: The big book is then shared with each child’s family. Each family is encouraged to write back to the class commenting on the super job they did.
