The Story Of The Hummingbird

First, we read “The Story of the Hummingbird”.  Students drew pictures, wrote interesting words, and wrote phrases to document their thinking as they listened to the story (a skill that the students have greatly improved upon this year!).

Then, students teamed up to retell the story using tableau to create visual images and Adobe Spark to narrate. A slide or two was added to the end to discuss the message of the story and how we can apply Hummingbird’s philosophy to our own lives.

This activity allowed students to develop their reading comprehension through retelling, develop their character with the discussion about caring and compassion, put drama and media skills into action, and improve collaboration.
