Students have been working on creating a collage to represent one of the wars we read about in class.
They have had several class periods to work on this project. The requirements are below:
-Projects will be collected at the start of class on Wednesday, May 11. (Thursday, May 12 for students who attended Quebec trip).
-Collages should be neat and creative and should have 10 images (drawn or cut out from newspapers, magazines, etc.), the child's name, and up to 3 words to describe the experience.
-No more than 3 images can be printed from a computer. The point of this project is not to google images and print! Be creative.
-In addition to the collage, a 1+ page explanation of the collage should be turned in that explains how each image, color choice, word, etc. relates to the text.
A suggested starting frame would include:
-Introducing the child, that they experienced war, and the country they were living in, and relevant background such as age.
-introduce collage choices. Be prepared to explain each image, word, and color choice and connect these objects back to the text. Proper citations should be used on the collage.
