"In the story, Because of Winn-Dixie, Gloria Dump hangs empty bottles from a tree in her backyard to represent her past mistakes. She does this to remind herself and others that we can learn from our mistakes and try to do better."
This project asks students to make their own mistake tree bottle. I did this project with my 3rd grade class after completing the novel.
