  • Teachers can listen to several "broadcast" stories in advance and find one or two that would be intriguing to their unique population. Teachers may first want to listen to a sample together with the class and discuss the difference between storytelling in science and other types of storytelling, before beginning this activity. Students may want to share their final projects with each other in a museum-type format. This resource could be used in either a large classroom, small group, or individual format depending on the level of independence of the students.
