Our second graders and fifth graders started to bring their fairytales to life today.
They had worked through the planning and now they are choosing between Bloxels, Toontastic 3D, and Puppet Pals.
Some of the groups are even taking it further and creating the story in several different mediums.
This week our second grade authors created more of their story while their fifth grade coauthor helped shape the original story. Last week each partnership designed their main characters using the draw feature in Morphi and uploading it directly to our Thingiverse account. The 3D printer printed non stop for several days bringing characters to life. The last touches were put on the characters using Sharpies to add color and detail. This activity was inspired by Karen Bosch and really helped both authors bond together over their story coming to life.
The story plan designed by Manuel Herrera is being used in paper form by our second graders and then the fifth grade partner is capturing the story into digital form prior to determining the final publishing format which many plan on using Bloxels.
