Today my students started wrapping up their work on War of the Worlds. My grade 6 boy finished up his War of the Worlds diorama ( the scene where the tripod battles the warship. refer photo below) and the grade 5s completed danger scales for the story. ( Refer photo below) In the background they put copies of their magazine covers of original art work and then added a graph measuring dangerous events put in sequence from the story. I also had them add some important quotes from the story. Most chose the iconic opening sentences to the story. Tomorrow they'll complete 'snakes and ladders' games for the day of the Triffids.
