  1. First off – it’s a fascinating topic- how stories / folk tales persist across different cultures. Interesting to see what elements remain the same, and which change.

    Your lesson is a great way for students to explore and make their own observations. Your instructions are clearly described and easy for teachers to replicate or adapt. A good example of how to use Jamboard in the classroom.

  2. Hi Marissa, I love that this activity is centered around Cinderella– a story we are all familiar with– and then branches out to include a variety of cultures. I think that grounding content in familiarity is a great way to increase engagement. I also like your use of Jamboard to create a Venn Diagram. One question I have is whether or not Jamboard allows you to embed audio– it would be really cool if the students could access the stories while working on their Jamboard page.
