To create a great, imaginative story it's important to start with a detailed setting. This week we've worked on developing an interesting setting for a story to take place.
Here is some of our work:
Setting: Apple Factory
This is an apple factory. When the apples fall down, the apples will land on the house. But the house is not a normal house. It’s actually a trampoline house. And they come down and they bounce down to the other side of the tree and take some more apples. Then they go down on the conveyor belt. And they smash into apple juice. Then the airplane goes and takes it to a land.
Setting: Outer Space
There are lots of stars at the top. And there’s one twinkly star. And a shooting star. And all of the stars are a family of stars. And I drew Earth. And diagonal from Earth is Pluto, I drew. And then the sun is the near the moon. And under the moon is the Milky Way, next to Pluto.
Setting: Candy Land
I made a candy land. And first of all I made a candy forest. And I second made the castle. Then I made this pool. And also then I made a trampoline. And I decorated the castle more. And then I put a machine that can throw marshmallows everywhere, because in the forest you can get sticks and put the marshmallows through the sticks and fry it on the fire. And the clouds are made out of candy floss. And also there’s peppermints on the castle. And the peppermint for the sun. And little peppermint swirls.
After we finished, we shared our work with the class, explained our sketches, and asked for feedback.
Later today we will start our character development.
Using our imagination is FUN!
