Lesson or Project: 3rd Grade Fable-telling with Puppet Pals
Holy Cross School, Fayetteville

 How it Works:
Puppet Pals is an iPad app that allows students to create visual story-telling videos. Students can choose characters, backgrounds, and props. They then record their voices over each character. When they are finished, the end result is a video of their story. 
 Curricular Connections:
3rd Grade students learned the elements of a Fable. They were then paired up to collaborate on a story. When they began using the app to create their story, the students were instructed to revise their story as needed to fit in with the setting and characters in the app. They shared their stories with their classmates.
