Myths Brainstorming Machine: A Writing with Writers Activity
This fun, easy-to-use interactive tool helps students get creative and come up with ideas for writing their own myths.
- Grades: 3–5
Scholastic’s interactive “Myths Brainstorming Machine” tool (grades 4–9) helps students tap into their creative side!
Students can choose characters for their myths, and place them into a graphical setting. A text-based scenario generator will then help them to outline their stories before they start writing their myths.
The final product, a combination of graphics and text, can be printed out and shared.
While participating in the “Myths Brainstorming Machine,” students will:
- Follow the writing process to create writing in different genres.
- Produce written work to show evidence of knowledge of the different genres.
- Use Web tools to write and publish original myths.
