Product Description
"I was prepared for the hot rain of tears; only I wanted them to be shed on my breast: now a senseless floor has received them, or your drenched handkerchief." Mr. Rochester in Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë (English novelist ~ 1816 - 1855)

Plain white handkerchiefs may not be what our students are carrying around school every day, but they are well acquainted with its substitute - that disposable paper tissue which - almost - replaced it.

A good project for a back-to-school vocabulary review which allows your students to show off their creativity is the tissue box project, perfect for Spanish 2 or higher at the start of school.

I start with a short overhead explaining the history of handkerchiefs, which evolved into the disposable paper tissue we frequently use today.

Did you know that you once could be put in jail if

your hanky was larger than the king's ?!!

You get:

1. A 7-page introductory overhead with a brief history of hankies and the advent of the disposable paper tissue

2. Project instruction sheet 1 with a rubric

3. Project instruction sheet 2 with a rubric

4. Project instruction sheet 3 with a rubric

* Each instruction sheet offers different criteria to decorate the box, depending on what you want your students to focus on and which can be changed to reflect your own criteria, if you wish. *


5. Photos of some wonderful student samples.

This is an easy-to-implement, out-of-classroom project which I usually assign the first week of school. I allow at least two weekends so students have time to do a nice job and, upon turning them in, I have a supply of tissues in beautifully decorated boxes for the whole year.

All items are ready-to-use to make your job easy. (11 pages)

I have created my products as Word documents because that is how I use them. They are unlocked so teachers can change vocabulary words or modify things if they wish.

If you prefer a different format for the overhead, below are some suggestions, however, the pictures may need to be inserted separately.

To Make A Slide Show In ActivInspire
If you use ActivInspire, you can save the Word document as a pdf (this is easily done with the newer versions of Word), then you can simply import the pdf to ActivInspire and have a document for that format.

To Make A Slide Show In PowerPoint
If you prefer to use the PowerPoint format, you can easily convert a Word document to a PowerPoint.

This link explains it clearly: 'Creating A PowerPoint From A Word Document.'
