There’s more to plot than identifying the series of events in a story. To start, students will experience two virtual field trips to discuss the plot of A Wrinkle in Time and a multicultural fairytale. Through this experience, students will extend their understanding of critical thinking skills to a plot. Students will use their 3D pen to contribute to a class brainstorm activity. Students will spend time working on their story by practicing with IFX characters and sounds.
