Stories of a Lifetime
Choose a country and hear their stories
About the Project
This is a literacy project, helping students to write scripts and storyboard cultural stories from their country. They use their scripts and storyboards to animate their cultural story.
By learning stories from their country, students reconnect with their history and heritage. Through the sharing of these on this project, students hear stories told in authentic voices and learn to value the rich cultures of our world.
The Global Goals for Sustainable Development are fundamental to the success of this project. This project links to four different goals 4, 5, 11 and 17. More information can be found on the Global Goals for Sustainable Development Website.
