🔓 This is an unlocked sample! Byrdseed.TV is open for new memberships through May 27th, 2022. Join today!


Students will analyze stories with similar problems, choosing the one with the most unique solution and, eventually, adding their own story to the group.


  1. Students will list stories that have similar problems.
  2. They'll decide which of the stories in this group has the most unique way of solving the similar problem.
  3. Next, they'll choose two new awards to give to two other stories in the group.
  4. Finally, students will think of their own version of a story with this same problem along with what award their story would win.
