Storyboard Assignment Sheet Layout

Students love lessons with graphic organizers, and when the graphic organizer in question is storyboards, they love it even more! They are naturally attracted to storyboards, because they love drawing things. But they also help students organize their ideas and present them in an orderly manner. We added some colorful and eye catching storyboard templates to help you along the way.

Storyboard Templates with Attractive Images

A storyboard has two basic things; an area for visuals and some text lines to explain the visuals. A word document with boxes and lines will do the trick, but what it won’t do is the delight and excite students. That’s one reason why we added graphics to some of our storyboard templates. Also the visual aids are in different sizes and shapes. No two visuals carry the same details, with Creately you can change the sizes to exactly fit your visual.

Storyboard template to translate an idea into a visual story

The best way to make sure that your students understood the lesson you just taught them is to get them to express the ideas they have about the topic. What better way to encourage them to express their ideas than to get the kids to translate the ideas into a visual story in a sequence.  A storyboard template like this is a great way to get them  to be more excited about being expressive.

What is a Template?

Templates originate from builders and other craftsman who made forms and molds to serve as guides for shaping materials. Templates have since expanded to include document formatting, along with many other uses like printing and sewing. A template is a pre-formatted guide that can be used again and again. Blank templates for graphic organizers are especially useful because you do not need to recreate the same thing over and over, and they can be used for many purposes.

Basic Storyboard Template

The storyboard is usually a sequence of images in linear order to show the progression of a story. For basic storytelling, including narration, animation, and film, a straightforward template is all that is needed. Add in title and description boxes and cells as needed for the desired length and complexity.

Step 1: Make Storyboard

Create a storyboard according to your specifications. Add text or images, change the number of cells, change the background or text color of title and description boxes, adjust the size of each cell, etc.

Step 3: Convert Storyboard

After you create and save the storyboard you want to use as a template, look below the storyboard for the "Convert Storyboard to Template" button. It looks like this:
