How to make a concertina book




Let’s Get Writing!

Write a story with you as the main character. You could sketch a picture of yourself like Omar.


Add notes about what you look like, things you say, things you do, what you like and dislike, what makes you laugh.



Now Let’s make a plan!



  • Where is it set?
  • What Problem is being solved?
  • What Action needs to be taken?
  • What happens next?
  • Who do you meet?
  • What Solution is proposed?
  • Does the problem get solved?
  • How does your story End?


Use a different piece of paper for each part of your plan, like Mara in the video.
