Last semester, we read a few of the tales out loud, talked about them, and watched some claymation/animation videos that the school has. We also worked together on a list of the pilgrims and their characteristics and what they look like, etc. And then, each student had to give a presenation about a pilgrim from the perspective of the pilgrims and dress up and use props and the whole nine yards.
So, this semester... my trailer class... I could have them do the presentation thing again. Well, for the first time, but chances are they would just blow it off again. Plus, I would like to do something different. I heard of someone assigning them pilgrims and having them describe them and draw/color them. That sounds fun unless a kid isn't artistic. Do they just draw stick figures?
Did you do a neat project or did your teacher do something fun with you? I can definitely make the stories interesting because they're so rude and dirty, but all the other stuff? I need some help!
