|They used a coffee filter book idea from That Artist Woman for the report. I love how they turned out. They're chunky and not perfect at all.|
:: The Cover ::
|The boys started their cover by painting a piece of watercolor paper blue. After the blue dried they used the end of a paintbrush to make white snowflakes.|
|I made a template from an old cereal box that was the same size as the coffee filters. They traced around the template.|
|Then cut it out.|
|They glued their cut out snowy background onto a piece of chipboard. Next was drawing a reindeer head & cutting it out. Then add all the other details.|
:: Inside Pages ::
|The first pocket is about random Reindeer Facts.|
|Mr. T's book has a couple photos added as pages.|
|Food Chain Pocket|
Capt. N's food chain pocket has 3 pull outs. He made one sheet listing a reindeer's predators, another listing the things a reindeer eats & the third sheet has a diagram showing a bear eating a reindeer, which is eating grass.
|The final pocket is a reindeer's habitat. The three things the boys chose to put in this pocket were a map showing where reindeer live, a paper listing the two types of reindeer habitats & a drawing of a reindeer in its habitat.|
These turned out great. The kids not only learned a little more about reindeer, but we also had mini lessons on various habitats & animal classification. This was a fun project to work on right before Christmas break.
