The Life of the Ugly Duckling
I created the Scratch animation The Life of the Ugly Duckling as my response to a project to create an interactive ethical story.
An ethical story is about bullying. I explained how bullying is not right whichever path you chose.
My story is about bullying. In the beginning of the story, the mother duck was looking at her eggs wondering why there was one egg that looked different from the others. The eggs then hatched but there was one that was different from all of the others. There was a duckling that was very ugly. The mother duck then wondered what would happen to the ugly duckling but then got over quickly. After that scene, the brothers and sisters of the ugly duckling make fun of it because it is so ugly. The Ugly duckling then talked to himself about how he was always made fun of. You then got two chooses, one was to help the Ugly duckling or bully it with his siblings. If you helped it, the Ugly duckling would turn into a beautiful swan, but if you chose to bully it, than the Ugly duckling would commit suicide.
My story was inspired by a childhood book I read when I was a kid.
I think I was successful in creating my story because the animation was longer than three minutes long, the story was interactive, there were two ethical choices, there were two endings, I also gave the credit to the authors of all the music, and the story was appropriate for children up to 13 years old.
