Lining Up Good Books

Lining Up Good Books Final

Encourage students to share favorite books with this literature display. To display the projects, stretch yarn or a rope across a bulletin board to make a clothesline. Then use clothespins to clip the finished projects to the rope. For added flair, post seasonal details (such as flowers, trees, leaves, or snow) behind the shirts. Or have students design different articles of clothing to match the weather.
