  • Making 3D Shapes
  • Creating characters from pumpkins

    When Hodgenville Elementary teacher Shannon Keen was researching ideas for an October classroom unit, an item on Pinterest caught her eye that gave a new spin to student book projects.

    “When I announced we were doing a book project, I heard quite a few moans and groans,” she admitted. “When I revealed the actual assignment was a book project with a twist, their sighs turned into squeals of excitement.”

    The assignment was to take a small-to-medium-size pumpkin and create a favorite book character.
