This story was created as part of a Literacy Residency led by Storyteller and Teaching Artist Katie Knutson in Mrs. Brennan's 2012-13 Kindergarten class at Glen Lake Elementary.

The students studied Pourquoi (How and Why) Stories, chose a creature about which to write a story (in this case, a jellyfish), and then did some research. We found this picture particularly interesting: ocean.nationalgeographic.com/ocean/photos/ocean-jellyfish/#/jellyfish11-jellyfish-tide_17915_600x450.jpg

Once we knew the scientific reasons behind the picture, the students created this fictional story using the Pourquoi framework we had studied.

We hope you enjoy this video and comment below!

The residency was a partnership between Hopkins Public Schools and Stages Theatre Company, funded by the Cargill Foundation.
