826MSP Creative Learning Experience

Available to 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade classes across the Twin Cities, our Storytelling & Bookmaking Field Trips strive to embolden our next generation of writers to explore and value their own voice. During a field trip, students will learn about the elements of a story while collaborating in small and large groups. At the end of the field trip, students are invited to finish the story individually, which the group has left at a cliffhanger ending. The field trip teaches students about collaboration, self-editing, the bookmaking process, and elements of successful storytelling. Volunteers—including an illustrator—work with student authors to complete and publish a book within two hours.
