As another OxCart Man (Donald Hall and Barbara Clooney) activity transformed from paper to iPad, students created a vocabulary dictionary. Pairs of students looked through the book and determined words they thought would most likely be found in a glossary because they were difficult and unfamiliar. We put the list of the board and had about 15 words.
Pairs were asked to choose 4 of the words and create a 4 page StoryBuddy dictionary. I asked them to define and illustrate each of the words, being sure they created the pages in alphabetical order, of course!
