B decided to do Robin Hood. It fit well since we are studying the middle ages this year. I was even able to find him a costume on eBay. I love eBay. :-) I took out a bunch of Robin Hood books & he devoured them. He seemed to have taken in plenty of information & did a good job of explaining his display to anyone who stopped by.
This was a diorama that we made.
Ben did most of the work, but I did help some.
The Sheriff is by the castle.
Maid Marian & Robin Hood are by "Sherwood Forest."

N, well, for N we did the history of trains. This is the child who has absolutely loved trains since he was about two years old. I found some images on the Internet that he cut out & pasted. Then he told me all he knew about the different types & I typed that for him. To complete his display board he drew some pictures of trains. Then we added a small track with a Thomas going round & round. That drew most of the little boys who were there with their older siblings.
N was hilarious about his display. He would literally run up to people & say, "Come see my display! Come see my display!" This is the child that I have said has never met a stranger. He delighted in sharing his knowledge & did pretty well with it all in all.
