Yes I do and one that my third graders loved. HAve to give credit to someone
on the list and I apologize for forgetting their name. They told about star
books and even
sent me a darling sample of one in a cute little handmade box. How could I
forget their name??? Anyway her project came from a book called "Flying
Books" .
The star book we made in third grade had 3 pages and our subject was the
First page was a sea monster, second page the myth about the sea monster these
first two had to be from their imagination - no direct copies but could use
The the third page was an actual Viking map taken from my world map. They
it look old with tea and wrinkles. The pages were folded in a special way as
described in the "Flying Books" We made our covers from recycled crescent
some covered with foil glied over a raised design (yarn) and others drew
symbols etc. All had much fun. Perhaps anyone interested could look in the
archives for the actual Star Book lesson mentioned. Roberta
