LEGO Storytelling in the Library
December 5, 2014
Here is the finished story
Students from different lunch periods built a story through a series of challenges. The following lunch periods contributed each part of the story:
4th period lunch: Setting and character development
5th period lunch: Conflict
6th period lunch: Resolution
Students wrote the story and illustrated their ideas with LEGOs
Our story begins in Moscow in the early 1920s. It is the early stages of the Russian Revolution
He's a veteran cop, just three days away from retirement. There isn't much that he hasn't seen during his years with the force. However, a nagging shoulder injury has made life very difficult
Steve the Wizard
He is a fourth year wizard (held back for several years at wizard school). He always wanted to be a dancer, but unfortunately his father made him go to magic school. He still dances when he can. He also has dementia and knee problems from an unknown injury
After Grucelda Grundenson's escape, a wizard decides to punish him. Brute McGillis, on duty cop, sees a criminal escaping prison. He began pursuing him.
The resolution to the story...
Grundenson uses a flame-retardant gel spray to get through the Forest of Fire.
The chase continues as both Grundenson and McGillis hop along stones in the river of lava that flows from the Volcano of Hot
As Grundenson makes it past the Volcano of Hot, the wizard summons a giant robot that falls from the sky!
Steve's dementia begins to set in. He forgets why he was angry and he forgets his dream of being a dancer.
