My students are working on a project in class this week and next. We've bee reading Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief in my 7th grade English class and for our culminating project for the unit, students are choosing an original Greek myth to reinterpret for a modern audience as either a children's book, graphic novel, or an illustrated short story. The artistic element is just another way to communicate ideas along with the written work and we've been doing some drawing basics as mini-lessons this week. It's been a lot of fun.
Part of the challenge, however, is managing materials and supplies that my students use in class. Enter my supply boxes...
