My photo story project was about The Golden Compass (first book in the "His Dark Materials" series) by Philip Pullman. It was one of our choices for summer reading. For the project, we had to find pictures for the story elements and write sentences narrating the pictures. We then would have to put the pictures and narrations on a photo story. I believe that I chose pictures that represented the title, characters, setting, conflict, and denouement very well. The most difficult part was writing the narrations, because I had actually read The Amber Spyglass (the third book in the series) for Summer reading, and I hadn't read The Golden Compass for about two years. This project helped me see the book in ways my sixth-grade mind hadn't allowed. I learned that I must be patient with my partners; I was completely relying on them to help me remember the story.
