Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Find a Book That You Will Be Able to Cut Up
You can buy a book or use one you have,I Found the dictionary pictured below at Half Price Books For $2.00. It worked well for the project because it has thin pages, and were easy to cut. Make sure the book is about an inch thick or More or THIS WILL NOT WORK!
Step 2: Gather Materials
For this you will need:
- Exacto Knife OR a retractable blade knife which you can purchase from Home Depot or almost any arts and crafs store.
- Cheap Little Book
- Ruler or straight edge
Step 3: Make Your Mark
Marh off the area You Want to cut.
I later tore out the page i outlined my hole on because i got pen marking on the paage!
Step 4: Cut
Use the knife to cut out the desired area.
Every few pages flip over the cut pages to the left side.
When you get to the desired level stop and then you can be done or...........(go to next step)
Step 5: Your Done or You Can Chose to Glue the Pages Together!
The pages can now be glued together so the cut out pages last longer!
I didn't do this but it's an idea.
