The idea for this project was given to me by a colleague. Her son did the project in his school when they were much older and for his he chose a "door" which I think is very meaningful.
The students took a picture of something on our campus that inspired them-it could be anything, however we were a little limited because they are building a new school on our campus. After we printed the pic, they wrote about why it inspires them. Then they represented the photo in 2 different mediums of their choice. Most did a collage and painted it. After that they put it all together on a posterboard for display. I think some of them really "got" the meaning behind the assignment.
