Writing 5/4-5/10

This week you will be doing a few activities.

1st – you will be creating a representation of “your president” this can be done in a number of ways. You will use materials available to you to create a colored drawing, painting, sculpture, clay figurine, 2 liter bottle portrayal, egg-head portrayal, Lego creation (just to name a few choices). Pay attention to who your president was. Example, if they wore glasses, used a cane, had white hair, was always with their dog, etc. These things should be included in your representation (when I did this report, I chose to represent my president on a horse, because he was part of the Rough Riders – just to give you an example).

Representation: Worth 20 points
     1.  This should have the face of the president (styrofoam ball works great)
     2.  It should be dressed as the person (cloth, doll clothes, or paper)
     3.  It should also have some sort of prop that represents why their person is famous.  For example:  Thomas Jefferson might be holding a paper to represent the Declaration of Independence.
     4.  If dressing up a 2-liter bottle, it works best if you fill the bottle with water, sand, pasta, or beans prior to dressing it up.
     5.  Craft glue or a hot glue gun works best.  FYI -School glue does not hold.
     6.  The student should be the one to construct the president representation. Parents may help hold, cut, glue, etc., but it should be the student’s own work. Take a picture and send it to me.

2nd – you will draft your report about your president this week. Ask an older sibling or parent to look over your work. Ensure that it flows. Below is an example to help you with your hook and introduction. Your FINAL copy is due 5/17. DO NOT PUT THIS OFF!
