The Story Activity uses images to prompt a learner to tell a story.
Where to get Story

Learning with Story
Story is a fun way to get children to engage in narration. Simply generate some images and let the children's imagination do the rest.
- Ask the students to transcribe and refine their stories using the Sugar Write activity. (They can save to the Journal the images used to prompt their story and then embed this image into their Write document.)
- A spoken story (or notes) can be recorded to the Journal.
- Story can be shared, so the narration can be created amongst multiple students. They can chain together a story by taking turns; each turn involving generating narration for one image.
- Add new images to Story by putting them in the images folder of the activity.
