I'm in 7th grade and I'm doing a lesson plan for the book because of winn-dixie. For the final project I'm going to have students create a diorama that represents the primary or secondary themes in the book. From an adults perspective What do you think the students learn from doing this and how is it beneficial.

  • English -

    I see several advantages, starting with one of my goals for 7th graders. If they enjoy what they do at this age, then they'll be open to harder and less appealing assignments in high school and college. (I knew a woman who hated history in high school; she refused to read anything about the history of the foreign places she visited when she was much older.)

    Students learn to visualize what they've read by making a diorama. Those who artistic, but may not be very good at reading and writing, will feel successful. Other students who view the dioramas will see a variety of interpretations of the scenes, thus helping their comprehension of the book.
