Choose Your Own Adventure Stories - Using Google Forms



My newest obsession is having students use Google forms to create "choose your own adventure" stories.

The idea was brought up by another tech coach in the department and we had a fifth grade teacher try it with her class. Here is a link to the start of one story a student started. The teacher started with the kids trying to write their own stories but they weren't making much sense so she switched gears and had them choose common stories or fairy tales to turn into "choose your own adventure" stories and that seemed to go much better.

My goal is to try one on my own this summer to showcase to teachers who want to try it. There are several "how to" videos on YouTube that I will be using to get started. I embedded one above which I thought provided a nice quick overview.
