StoryQuest Project Ideas

Tasks are projects you can complete that tie in the themes of the books you’ve read. After you’ve read a StoryQuest title, you can complete Tasks for that book to earn stars and a chance to fight the Aliterati. You can complete as many Tasks per book as you would like and submit them to us through our social media pages.

 

Completing Projects

Projects may be completed at home and submitted to Anderson's through our social media pages. When you're ready to turn in your project, ask a parent to take a picture and send it to us. We'll share them online with our Anderson's Community!
