5th grade students worked on a handful of pages, finding words that brought them interest first. Some ideas included: circling words that start with the same letter, follow a pattern, or every 10th word. Students used various mixed mediums not limited to acrylic paint, water color, collage, pen and ink, and pastel.
I was lucky enough to see the book in it's entirety at MassMOCA this past winter. The exhibit and the book in the gift shop inspired me to share it with the 5th grade students.
