Heather, I too recommend another fantastic Google research writing feature, it was called the Google Wonder Wheel. I could go on and on how wonderful this product/feature is...was and how successful it was with internet research and international research writing globally. Therefore, I feel that before Google pulls an educational tool like Google Search Story and Google Wonder Wheel from the market, they should consider setting it aside in an educational domain where the programs can contiinue to grow and be used. One such product is Google's portaportal. I believe very few know of the product and it is still being used. If the Google Gods would just place these educational products into its own domain, then just maybe with word of mouth they will be able to become good revenue generators...but it will take time. I see this action similar to orphan drugs with drug companies. If the end product does not make enough revenue, they discontinue it. Google Educational Products Managers or even Google Edu, please just give these programs a chance and reconnect to the end users. You will not be disappointed.

That is a bummer...Google Search Stories was a brilliant success at storytelling.

Would it be possible to have students use a screen recording tool like Snagit or Camtasia to capture the sequence of searches that tell the story? I work for TechSmith, the maker of these tools...I'd love to hear whether you think students could use them successfully for this class activity.
