In order to get my creative writing students “incited”, we’ve spent the last couple of weeks creating our own keys. After all, keys play such an important role in so many stories; they are a great way for a character to either start an adventure, or to help him or her along the way.
The students started with a brainstorming sheet and then designed the key on paper before building it. Many of them also designed tags to go with their keys. In some cases, these tags presented instructions, or a riddle.
Here’s some photos of the activity . . . there is quite the variety of keys!
