This is such an awesome digital storytelling idea! The basic idea of the 4 Icon Challenge is to take a story, novel, historical event, etc. and summarize it using only for basic pictures or icons. These four pictures represent the main events that happened on the topic that is being discussed. The example below is my 4 Icon Challenge from the famous children’s book Where The Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak. This has always been a favorite book of mine when I was a child, and I can’t wait to show my students in class tomorrow. We are going to be reading The Polar Express, and I think the 4 Icon Challenge will be a great activity for the students to work on main idea. I used the drawing tools in Keynote to create my images, but I am going to have my students start off by using crayons, markers, or colored pencils first to get the hang of the project.
