Here’s a fun project that lets
you create simple animated
cartoons!
Fold a strip of 3” X 11” paper
in half, so that it is 3” tall by 5
1/2” wide.
Open the folded “book” and
draw a little bird with its wing
pointing down as shown.
Close the “book” and trace
the little bird, but draw his
wing pointing up.
Curl the cover of
the “book” around
a pencil as shown. Wrap it
tight and keep it there for a
few minutes.
A B C
Move the pencil
back and forth
quickly again and
again so that the curled
paper covers and uncovers
the picture of the little bird
below. It should look like the
bird is flapping its wings!
Circle all the
money amounts
you can find in the
newspaper in one
minute. Now tally
the amounts you
found. How much
do they add up to?
hen the most valuable baseball
card of Elizabeth’s collection
disappears, her mother’s new date
and a suspicious baseball card
dealer are likely suspects.
Unscramble the title of this book.
Then, check it out at your local
library this summer!
Collect examples of the many different borders
and lines used throughout the newspaper. Why
do you think the editor may have selected one
particular border instead of another? Remove
or replace a border and notice how each
change affects your feeling about a page.

This week’s word:
ILLUSION
The noun illusion means
something that tricks
your eyes into seeing
something not as it really is.
The magician used mirrors
to create the illusion that a
rabbit disappeared.
Try to use the word illusion
in a sentence today when
talking with your friends
and family members.
School Closed Forever?
Imagine you arrived at school
and the gates were closed.
A big sign reads “SCHOOL
CLOSED.” What would
happen if you no longer
had the opportunity to get
a school education?
