My students loved this project. They created amazing 3D maps of the town of Maycomb from To Kill a Mockingbird, which required them to closely read the book for textual details, connect setting to literary devices, plot events, and characters, and see the town of Maycomb from the perspective of various characters, the author, and themselves. You are buying a bundle of documents that will make organizing this fun, standards-based project a breeze. This bundle includes a detailed assignment sheet with steps, brainstorming ideas, starter quotes, and a place to record details from the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird. It also includes a turn-in sheet to keep everyone and their part of the project organized, a grading sheet with detailed point values, a gallery walk peer feedback reproducible, voting ballots for best projects, and, if you purchase this bundle, I'll send you the Group Planning Sheet for free.
