Book Report or Unit Study Idea

Last spring Luke and I studied the biographies of several famous Americans.  While studying Benjamin Franklin, he created a timeline mobile.  He enjoyed it so much, and he still can tell you so many interesting things about Ben Franklin's life.  Here's how he did it:

  • Go through the book or material and list the most important events in the person's life with dates.
  • Luke then printed the list and mounted each event on construction paper.  You could just hand write the events though. 
  • Punch a hole in the top of each event.
  • Tie a piece of yarn through the hole.
  • Hang the events at various levels, in order, from a wire hanger.

Did you have any good book report projects?
