Roscoe in the Desert - Template

“Roscoe’s Desert Trip” is an activity based upon the Animated Stories Toolkit template developed by Ann Brundige and Patti Rea.

Roscoe (a goose) takes a trip through the desert and encounters various desert plants and animals including a roadrunner, a chuckwalla, peccary, bat eared fox, joshua tree and barrel cacti. Each page provides a photograph of the various encounters as an animated Roscoe walks by. A text box is then provided for children to write about the trip and the picture they are looking at.

Please see the adjoining activity entitled “Roscoe’s Desert Trip” – Jimmy, which shows you an example of one child’s writing using this activity template. To see Jimmy’s story, click here.

Please note that the ‘Roscoe’ (Goose) image is a copyright protected frame animation and can not be used in other activities unless you own a copy of the Animated Story Toolkit.
