Make a movie, book report

Make a Movie!

Want a fun project that keeps history from seeming so boring? Instead of having your kids write a boring old report, have them make a "movie" instead. Give the kids some butcher paper, two empty paper towel rolls, an old cardboard box, and some markers and crayons. Tell them to draw scenes, in order, on the paper along with a storyline. Then, wind the paper along the roll.

If you don`t have butcher paper, you can tape together sheets of copy paper or of construction paper for the same effect. Recommend that the kids only draw one scene per piece of paper.
