Ransom story

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK


Creating a short story using words out of pre-printed material


Magazines, newspapers, annoying posted adverts, glue, paper, scissors


Get the young people to cut out words of the printed materials and glue them in an order that will make some form of sense when spoken out aloud.
Only need about 4 or 5 sentances, nothing too long. Also they can use pictures to make the storyline up, e.g. a picture of a dog for the kidnap victim.
The sillier the stories, the better!
Great activity for the Imagination badge for Beavers.
