Draw A Stickman

Draw a Stickman is a website that I stumbled upon a while ago but was reminded of recently by "i Learn Technology".  On this site you are given a set of instructions (starting with "draw a stickman") to follow which in turn leads to the development of a story.  It is a good exercise in following directions but also drawing and plot development.  I can see Draw a Stickman being used in a language arts classroom to discuss the elements of a story.  You could also use it as a starter activity for creative writing.  There are two episodes to choose and you get started with a click.  Check out the video below for a quick visual on how this site works.

Now What?

Be creative and engage your students using this fun activity which works excellently with interactive white boards.  I also just discovered that there is an "app for that" in the app store.
