Activity: The students will come up with a story. They will then find/take three pictures to represent the beginning, middle, and end with no caption. Students will comment on each other pictures guessing or making up a story that makes sense with the pictures provided.

Assessment: The students will be given IPads with pictures jumbled and they have to put them in order using IMovie, creating a movie. This will be checked as an informal assessment and then once it is in the right order students will be able to do a voice recording over the pictures to tell the story.
