We had a blast in our last workshop, all about Mark Twain! Throughout the week, students heard a kid-friendly version of the class Tom Sawyer adventure novel. We focused on his and Huckleberry Finn's adventures, the cave, the treasure hunt, life on the Mississippi, and the biography of Mark Twain. We worked with suitcases as our canvas- turning them into a diorama of Tom and Huck on the Mississippi River, a cave, and their own adventure book. We talked about fishing and steamboats and life in the 19th century, and they even made their own Tom Sawyer costume!
