Create Story Cubes With Templates from Read Write Think

Earlier this week I spent some time browsing Read Write Think and came across this lesson plan for creating biography cubes. The biography cube template is part of a larger set of four story cube templates called Cube Creators.

Cube Creators provide templates designed to break the writing process into six distinct parts. There are templates for writing biographies, mysteries, short stories, and a blank template that you can customize. Students enter the required information into the online template. When the template is completed, it can be printed with lines for cutting and folding to create an actual cube.

Applications for Education
Cube Creator templates could help students get started on a writing assignment when they're confronted with writer's block. The templates also provide guidance for outlining and formatting a story. These templates are suitable for elementary school use.
