Louis, the Trumpeter Swan

This story was adapted from E.B. White's The Trumpet of the Swan, (New York: Harper & Row Junior Books, 1973). He tells the story of Louis, a trumpeter swan, who is born without a voice. He finds an alternate form of communication to meet his needs.

Below are three examples of simple switch driven activities as outlined in the Technology Talk section (page 9) of the April 2006 Newsletter.

Although these activities can be viewed online they were not developed for that purpose and will not work as effectively, therefore we recommend you download them.
