Hans Christian Andersen Projects Due!

In our fourth grade exploration of fairy tales, we are finishing our unit about Hans Christian Andersen!  A reminder:  creative response projects are due no later than Friday, March 4th. Students may make a diorama, illustrate a favorite scene, make a quilt, puppet, costume, rap, fairy tale of their own...whatever excites their imaginations!  Details are available on the project sheet that has been set home and is available in the school library. 

Here are the stories to choose from:
The Princess and the Pea
The Steadfast Tin Soldier
The Little Match Girl
The Ugly Duckling
The Red Shoes
The Little Mermaid
The Emperor's New Clothes

Can't wait to see what students create!

Follow-up:  Flocks of ugly-ducklings-turned-swans, more mattresses than, several pairs of red shoes and an ocean full  of mermaids!  The children worked very hard to bring these classic stories to life and were very cunning about using everyday materials in new and creative ways.  Here is just a small sampling:

Can you spy the pea?
