Connections 3: Cut And Assemble Books

This would be the poor man's alternative to having Sam's help in a "House I Live In" craft project. Match this book (and there are many others like it from Dover) with the Jean Fritz book on Paul Revere and with the video of the book available from I'm not quite sure what literacy strand it links up with-biography, historical fiction, kabala? It certainly links up nicely with 5th grade social studies. One book could be used for many by scanning and then printing on card stock (if your printer allows) or printing on paper and pasting to oak tag before cutting. An advanced project might involve increasing the scale by enlarging by a consistent multiple.
