Our project this week, is about a special friendship of Lubna, a girl whose refugee family had lived in the world of tents, and her special friend, Pebble. Let’s read the book Lubna and Pebble by Wendy Meddour together and create a camping night project using real plants and flowers this time.
Learn about Refugee community and friendships from the book Lubna and Pebble by Wendy Meddour.
Listen to the book
- Dark and bright construction paper
- Tissue paper
- Plant and flowers
- Dry out your plants by Laying them flat on a piece of paper/tissue paper and then place them in the middle of a book.
- Place the book that has your flowers still insides, inbetween other books and heavy objects to create pressure. Leave your flowers there for 3 - 7 days to help press and dry your flowers.
- Pick a dark colored piece of paper to be your background.
- Then pick out a brighter colored piece of paper and cut out two triangles.
- Cut a slit half way up the middle of the triangles
- Fold the slits towards the edge of the treiangles to create the flaps of your tents.
- Then using a different colored piece of paper cut out two squares and glue them to the back of your tents.
- Then glue the whole back side of your tent with the square attached and place on your background.
- Draw a friend's smiley face on the inside of the tent.
- Glue on the dried plants/leaves/flowers onto your paper.
- Use chalk/pastels to draw a night sky above your tents.
- And there you have it, all thats left now is to display your project!
