StoryLines

This one is pretty cool- and it is free!  StoryLines is a game of ‘telephone’ with pictures.

One person begins the story with a common saying.  The next person grows the StoryLine by illustrating that saying.   Another student titles that drawing (without seeing the original saying). Yet another student illustrates that title, and so on.  In class, you could start the story with a phrase from class, a famous quote for a person you are studying, a famous event, etc. and let the class go to town…  my mind is literally jumping with the possibilities.

StoryLines is one of those apps that wasn’t built for education but the classroom is the perfect place for it.  Kids will have fun, think, and have to be creative if we give them the right prompts and monitor the progress.  Love this app and, again, the best part is that it is completely free.
