Imagine that you have just taken a journey through A Wrinkle in Time. You have visited the places in the book, witnessed the events, and met the characters. While you were there, you snapped pictures the entire time, like a photojournalist trying to capture every detail. Now that you have returned home, you need to sort through your photos. Choose the 8 most important photos to create a photo album. These 8 photos should show what you believe are the most important aspects of the book.
- Include the more important people, places, events, or objects from the story.
- Draw 8 important pictures with a caption for each.
- Each caption should include at least 5 sentences. The caption should describe what is going on in the picture and the importance it has to the story.
- Mount the photos and captions in a construction paper album.
*On the front of your photo album:
- Write an interesting title
- Include a picture of your favorite scene from the story
- Put your name at the bottom
*On the back of your photo album:
- Explain why you chose the 8 photos you chose.
- What importance do they have to the story?
- What kind of meaning do they have to you?
The more creative the better! Have fun making this!
