Exploding Books!

Mrs. Cerna's 6th Grade classes are creating book projects that literally explode with creativity

The students are learning about color theory and experimenting with a new method of visual art (book making) in order to create impressive EXPLODING BOOKS in class. The book making is part of a larger unit where students use their exploding books as the vehicle to create a report on a novel they have read. The completed book report will include the following: (1) the problem / solution, (2) beginning / middle / end, (3) an important quote, and (3) the theme (written and also conveyed by the colors and images incorporated in the book).

Stay tuned as students continue to bring their book to life through this project.
