Here are a few ideas for photos, symbols, quotes, etc. that would work well for a scrapbook project:
A picture of "Scout" all dressed up for her first day of school - include an explanation of how she hates having to wear a "darn ol' dress"
A quarter - explain that Scout got into trouble her first day of school after explaining to Miss Caroline why Walter couldn't take her quarter; you might also introduce Atticus's quote about the importance of seeing things from another's point of view:
“First of all ... if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you’ll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view ... until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (Lee 29-30)
A feather - include the quote from Atticus where he tells Jem and Scout,
"Shoot all the bluejays you want, if you can hit em, but remember it's a sin to kill a mockingbird" (Lee 119).
An old spelling medal or a gum wrapper - explain that these were items Jem and Scout found in the tree in front of the Radley house
A piece of thread - explain that this is a piece of thread from Jem's pants that he got caught in the Radley fence
A piece of blanket - explain that this is from the blanket that the kids suspect Boo put on Scout during the fire at Miss Maudie's house
A picture of handcuffs - explain that Tom Robinson was arrested and jailed for allegedly raping Mayella Ewell
A camellia petal (or other flower petal) - explain that this is from the camellia Mrs. Dubose gave Jem from her garden after he had finished reading to her as punishment for destroying her camellia bushes
A page from a Bible or hymn book - explain that this is from Calpurnia's church, taken when the kids attended church with her
A Coke label - explain that this is what Dolphus Raymond really drinks, rather than alcohol, as Scout and Dill learn when they speak to him outside the courtroom
A picture of a cocoon - Jem says, upon realizing that people aren't what he thought,
"It's like bein' a caterpillar in a cocoon, that's what it is ... like something asleep wrapped up in a warm place. I always thought Maycomb folks were the best folks in the world, least that's what they seemed like" (Lee 288).
A photo of a ham - explain that this is what Scout dressed up as for the school play
A piece of chicken wire - explain that it was the wire from Scout's costume that helped to save her life
A picture of the cover of the book The Grey Ghost - explain that this is the book Atticus read Scout at the end, where she ends up talking about how it turned out Boo was "real nice."
Wow! Thank you so, so, much! I really appreciate you taking the time to help me!
