Celebrate Your Mother Using Digital Storytelling

Mother’s Day is about so much more than flowers and jewelry. For Mother’s Day, your students can use code to tell animated, interactive stories about what their mothers or other important women in their lives mean to them.

Each student can create a custom story by designing characters that look like them and their mother, then easily animating the characters to tell a story about what they admire and love about their mother. It’s a gift that Mom will remember because it’s deeply personal and comes from the heart.

Students can follow easy step-by-step instructions for customizing their characters and animating them to tell their story. At the end, each student will have a unique project to show their mother.
