A Fun Project

The Texas History project (that inspired a pancake) is finished! Bethany has spent the past couple of months taking pictures of the shape of Texas all over the place. Her assignment was to not only find and photograph the shape of Texas in as many places as she could, but to design a way to creatively display the pictures. We went to Hobby Lobby this week, where she walked around and got ideas.

This is what she came up with: She got a 12 x 12 plain wooden frame and decoupaged some patterned scrapbook paper and some stickers around the border. Then she made a collage with her favorite shots of "Texas," and voila!

I think it turned out great. And since I'm the one who's grading it, as Martha Stewart would say... "It's a good thing."

Great job, Bethany! I love being your teacher!

wow, that is so creative. I am really struck by that. Your daughter did a great job! We are about 1/4 thru our state history, maybe we will do something like this too.
thanks for sharing,
