Pourquoi means "Why?" in French.
Pourquoi stories have been around as folktales for many years dating back to the Native Americans. Mrs. Burke's third grade class worked hard to create their own, original Pourquoi tales. Using the app Book Creator, students wrote the tale and then using the app Drawing Pad, students illustrated their tale. As an added challenge students also added sound to their story.
Each story was written to answer the "why" or "how" questions about animals.
