Grade 7/8 Creative Box Projects

Last week the Grade 7/8's shared their Creative Box projects. Their projects were based on their World War Literary Circle novels. Each group chose a novel based around the topic of World War Two. The last couple of months they have been busy reading, responding, and talking about their books. As a final project they had to re-create numerous details about the book in a creative way, often transforming the books info into an artifact (newspaper, diary, postcard) from the 1940's. We had some great reactions from our grade  5/6 visitors with a book or two being borrowed in the end! A nice way to celebrate I love to read month!
