This is a handout to be used for teachers and students to create handmade sketchbooks.
All you need to complete these books are:
•recycled cardboard (I use cut up cereal boxes)
•Butcher paper, drawing paper or even fabric for the covers
•Copy paper or drawing paper for the inside pages
•large needles (yarn needles work
I make sketchbooks with my older students at the start of each year. We then use our sketchbooks all year long for brainstorming, drawing exercises, do-nows, notes, and homework. I've found that when students spend time and effort making a sketchbook, they are less likely to get lost over the course of the year. If you have purchased any of my other unit or lesson plans, I reference the sketchbooks often. With this handout you can make and use handmade sketchbooks in your class!
