Ideas for Visuals – Or Use Your Own Idea

  3. Make something such as a scrapbook or keepsake box with personal items, pictures, etc.

Audio: Music can be a powerful addition to your project, but is not mandatory.
VERY IMPORTANT NOTES:

  • Do NOT depend on e-mail to access your project on the day it is due. Use a disk or flashdrive and test it on the classroom computer ahead of time. More than one method of backup is recommended.

  • You will bring in your project the day it is due, but will be able to take your project home the same day. In other words, I will not have possession of any valuable mementos at any time.
