Ella finished her big Civil War paper and project this week. I think this has been going on since Christmas. She also had a four day math assessment and lots of theater practice and performance, so I'm pretty relieved that the weekend is here. Here is a link to what a crankie is. The paper roll has about twelve scenes, pictures of Clara, quotes, and some pictures that we took at Civil War sites. She puts her Nook behind the rolling page with some Civil War era music. We have been talking about her project for next year already---maybe a crankie show that is sewn.
