This scrapbook project can be used for multiple Spinelli novels. It includes an assignment sheet, 4 planning pages for all items that are to be included on each scrapbook page. This project is meant to be used in groups of 4-5, each child chooses a section of the book and age range and makes 1 scrapbook page. The final culminating project is 1 multi-page scrapbook handed in by each group. This was one of my student's favorite projects. It was used specifically for main character in Loser, Crash and Maniac Magee.
