7th Grade Literacy Assignment: more uninstructed art

Read Shipwreck-The Island Trilogy #1. Write a one-page summary of the events of the book. Create a 3-D image of one scene from the book. This can be on a poster board or in a shoebox, but it must have color. Make sure the details are from the book, and that anyone could easily identify the scene you pick.
Yet another example, as Dawn and Beth write below, of how the "creative" projects, in Beth's words, "are an insult to real creativity and art."

Holy mackerel! This is for 7th grade? Think of what these kids could be doing.

I'm getting serious about afterschooling dd with Singapore Math.

Um... how often do the professionals creating cover art bother to get the details right so that one "could easily identify the scene you pick."
