How We Did It

What follows is an account of what we did to complete the project. All of the art work is original and created by the students using the kid pix program by Broderbond. After reading the book in class,students met in small groups and decided among themselves what they felt were the most exciting and important part of the chapter they chose to illustrate. All students in class participated since the novel study was part of the curriculum.

For the author page graphics, we decide to use our video capturing camcorder. Students captured all the photos of each other. They used Graphic Converter to shrink the heads to a size that would fit the generic bodies. The generic bodies were created by a student who drew a generic Indian boy and girl and a generic English boy and girl. Each child got to choose what body they wanted and some students assembled the heads on the bodies.
