My son had to do a "shadowbox" project for his 2nd grade class based on a "winter themed" book he read. We used to call them "dioramas" in my day, but he chose to do it on Jeff Smith's "Bone," and I think it came out really well. I gave him the idea for how to use construction paper for the background, but the work is all his, and his sculptures look pretty cool, I think.
"Bone" in glorious old-school 3D! Comics in the classroom!
