Digital Story: The Crayon Box That Talked

As you think of ideas for digital stories, this one created by young children to address the theme of cultural diversity might stir your imagination.  After viewing the video, leave some comments. What does the story say to you about the children's creativity? What about their approach to explaining cultural diversity? Does their video give you ideas for digital storytelling? Would you show this video in your own classroom? Would you consider making a similar video using a story such as "The Crayon Box That Talked"?


  1. I love this story! My school's theme is character education and I use this story during a character lesson all the time. My colleague and I are going to create a digital story using a character theme. This video came me reassurance that I am on the right track with the thinking behind my project. I would definitely show this video in my classroom. It shares a great message!

  2. This is a great use of digital storytelling. I like how the character came to life from the book. This would be an excellent project for my students' comprehension skills. I am definitely going to try to incorporate something like this into my classroom. Thanks!
