Look for news of interest to your class in an online magazine (for example, HS Lasten uutiset). Start Start by examining the picture in the news.
Use anticipatory reading style:
what can you infer from the news based on the picture?
The image is processed in the following three ways:
as a world of sounds,
as a cartoon and
a digital story.
Return what you think is the most successful version to the teacher.
Create a sound world for the picture. What kind of sounds can be heard from the picture? Produce and record the sound world with your phone or tablet.
Make a cartoon about the situation in the news picture. What happened right before the picture was taken? What happens next?
Make a digistory about the situation in the picture. You can implement the story either acting or drawing and recording. Good applications for making a digital story are e.g. iMovie, Quik or Spark video.
Finally, you can read the original news story and discuss the relationship between it and your own interpretation.
