The book Cloudy With A Chance for Meatballs is a culmination to a story read in class. The play was written and performed by students in the Cooley 5th grade GT class as they interviewed a character from the book. The interviews take different perspectives (normal, fantasy and crazy) of what happened in the story.
Elementary Story Telling illustrates how video and audio tools are used to tell a story - a digital story. Curriculum topics chosen by the teacher vary from class field trips to the reenactment of historical or current events. Some digital stories include the entire class, while others use a smaller group of selected students. Video length is generally 2 to 10 minutes.
