Make your own story

The following activity will help children to understand that stories may have similar characters and storylines, but rolling a dice introduces random elements that encourage surprise twists and turns.

Click here for a printable blank template. Split the class into small groups and ask the children to fill in the Character, Setting and Problem columns. An example of this is shown below.

Once they have completed their story table they will need a dice to begin creating a stimulus for a new story.

Roll the dice to pick a character and then roll the dice a second time to select a location. Roll the dice a third time to choose a dilemma.

The dice can be rolled multiple times for many different characters, settings and problems if needed.

The story can then be continued and concluded by writing, drawing pictures or performing in a drama improvisation.
