Projects due: Thursday, March 15th

4 Step Project:

  1. Research a person

  2. Make a Bottle Buddy

  3. Write a Riddle

  4. Dress up like your famous person and share your work.

  1. Research a famous person- it may be someone famous from history, or a current person. Read a biography or article about your person. (Students in grades K-1 may choose to do their project on a hero from a fictional story)

  1. Make a bottle buddy -use a 2-liter bottle for the body and a painted 4” Styrofoam ball (found at Hobby Lobby, Wal-Mart or other craft stores) for the head. Fill the bottom with 2 inches of sand or dirt. Make the bottle look like your person. To make your bottle like your person use any material available: felt, paint, fabric, rocks, sticks, hats, construction paper, aluminum foil, etc. to create their costume and props. Your teachers at school will have materials you can use as well if you need some. Also if you have extra bottles, balls or supplies please bring them in!


* Joseph Smith by Avery Quilter, and Michael Jackson by Davin Furnell
