What's in the Bag?

This project is designed to embrace the Maker movement and inspire creativity. Students are asked to create a character with the items included in the bag. They are then encouraged to write a short story with their creation as the main character. The stories are read and recorded using the PixNTell.edu App and a picture of their creation.
