1. COVER – The cover should have a picture of your
Saint, their name and their Feast Day. (The picture can be hand-drawn and colored or a copy from a Saint Book or Saint Card colored in.) Decorate as you choose.
2. The report itself, should be in your own words (not straight
from the internet or other information source) and tell the class the important information you think we should know about your Saint. The report needs to be
handwritten. You will be receiving a handwriting grade as part of this project.
3. The report should be neat and decorated attractively.
Remember to check your spelling before you hand
in your final report and indent your paragraphs. Also, remember to use capital letters where needed and remember to use correct punctuation.
4. The final part of your report should be to put a back cover on and then put together your report using staples, or make a flip book and put it on a ring, ribbon, yarn tie, or something similar.
5. Remember to create a Saint Introduction Poster with
“Hello I’m Saint _____________” on the front and your interesting facts on the back for the Saints Parade on November 6th (due November 2nd).
The most important thing about this report is to gather information about your Saint that you think the class should know and have fun yourself learning about your Saint. When the projects are complete, you will be the teacher, and share your project with the rest of us. I can’t wait to hear what you uncover and see the wonderful reports you design. You guys are such amazing detectives and are also incredibly creative!
***Remember to plan your costume because on November 6th, you get to be in The Saints Parade and share some fun facts about your Saint at First Friday Mass! Plan ahead as to what you are going to share that day.
