A jackdaw is a
bird that scavenges material to build its nest. Collect artifacts
representing ideas, events, characters, and/or themes in your book.
Prepare a display of these items. Label each artifact and briefly
write about its importance to the book. You may also want to include
a quote from your book for each of the artifacts.
The jackdaw pictured below is from an intermediate student who read
Gary Paulsen's The River. The student used paper to create
some of the key artifacts from the book, and included a short written
explanation for each piece.
