For thing # 6 I created a magazine cover. The cover is for a pet magazine and was created in memory of my beloved dog, Chip, who died very suddenly and unexpectedly last September at the age of eight.
In the near future, I will have my students create a magazine cover for a fictional character from a novel (possibly "Stargirl").
I am also wondering if this will work for a brochure. We are reading about Pompeii in my Reading I Sheltered class, and next week my students will begin to create a travel brochure for Pompeii. I found a number of photos on Flickr that can be used for this activity.
Now that I know of these fabulous creative possibilities, I will use them for many school related and personal creations.
