CREATE A WORLD

by Mary Amato

Fiction writers have the fun of creating an entire world. Teachers and parents can encourage kids to use cheap materials like shoeboxes and peeps to invent a 3D scene. As they are constructing the scene, ask them to be thinking of a storyline for the character (s) in the scene. 


Make a storybook to accompany the scene or simply allow for verbal storytelling. When I was a child, I told many stories as I played with my dollhouse. Creating a unique scene can facilitate even more interesting stories.
