Start with a Story: The Museum

Designed for all learning environments, the Start with a Story program ties the works of New York Times best-selling author and illustrator Peter H. Reynolds to hands-on SEL, literacy and STEAM activities. Each lesson pack focuses on one book and includes five or more lessons to inspire creative learning and story activation for students in grades k-5. While teachers can begin with any lesson, we encourage instructors to start with a book reading and an SEL activity and/or the team-building activity before moving onto animation, engineering, and/or journaling.

About Start with a Story: The Museum

The story of The Museum by Susan Verde, illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, is a delightful adventure in creativity. The goal in this Start With A Story pack is to have students embark on empathy-driven activities that let them perceive art, just like the little girl: being exposed to even more artwork, feeling in tune with their own emotions, and claiming original creations as their own.

Through the 5+ lessons of Start with a Story: The Museum, we have focused on these concepts along with the creativity self awareness.

Note: Licenses to Animation-ish and FabMaker Studio are recommended for two of the lessons. If you would like to purchase autographed books by Peter H. Reynolds visit his online bookshop, The Dot Central.
