Items to Gather:
- Paper. Use plain copy paper for an open canvas, lined for writing guides or any other paper that fits your book theme or needs.
- Objects to place into baggie that support your writing. I used coins. Consider any other item that fits your objective in making this book.
1. Cut your paper just smaller than the baggie so that it will fit inside. Be sure that it is small enough that the zipper will close.
2. Write your story, facts or journaling. Draw pictures or diagrams. You'll need to plan out the pages so you know the order and how many you'll need.
The ways to use these baggie books is endless. I see great uses in science or have students collect an item and do a creative writing about it and include the object in the front cover. Be imaginative in all the possibilities this book format could have for you and your class.
Use various size baggies depending on your need. Note that the freezer bags are more sturdy, but often have a white box in the middle for freezer labeling. This may be a problem for the book.
