Newspaper Costumes & Duck Tape Unit

Screen Shot 2013-03-29 at 9.07.57 AMWhile I was off on medical leave growing a new liver, my students were working hard in class. One project that rocked the house is the Newspaper Costume Project. In the spirit of Duck Tape Prom, students got into teams and had to create a costume appropriate to wear to a prom comprised solely of tape [duct, masking, scotch, etc.] and newspaper. Each model walked down the runway, introduced by our fearless substitute, Mr. Sanchez.
