Literature Fair–Heidi

Olivia selected the book Heidi, by Johanna Spyri for her year end project for my Literature Circle class at co-op.   She has really enjoyed working on this project, and she did a wonderful job.

Step #1:  Collect supplies including a tri-fold display board, small cardboard box, random sticks from the neighborhood and dried pine needles.

Step #2:  Create a thatch house top by hot gluing the pine needles to a piece of cardboard.   Then hot glue the sticks to the outside of the box to make a “log cabin”, then affix a door.

Step #3:  Draw in the mountains, use masking tape to tape off the mountains and paint the sky.

Step #4 Add the mountains.   We started off with a basic green, and added a little black for the farther away mountains, used the original green for the bigger mountain and then added a little yellow and white to the basic green for the closest mountain.

Step #5:  Add the title, author, summary, conflict and character sections.I thought it was totally cool that she put the title and author on clouds floating above the mountains.

Step #6:   Put it all together, and TADA!

I’m excited to see how the rest of the class projects turn out.  I’ll share those with you in a few weeks, as they aren’t due until May 9.
