Shadow Boxes with the novel, Coraline by Neil Gaiman

We made shadow boxes with items to go with the book, Coraline, by Neil Gaiman. One of my favorites! I got the wooden boxes at the Dollar Tree (for $1 each) and the items I found at Halloween stores, the grocery, etc. The kids had a blast choosing the items to place into their shadow boxes. Once the boxes were done, they had to write an explanation of their choices and each one’s connection to the story!

Try it yourself with a novel you are reading in your classroom!  I may have to do it with another book, the kids loved these so much they only let me display them for a few days!
