My Final Reflection

I think the story was interesting  and that the boat appealed to the first graders. Every kid that read my book, liked the story and my physical book. I would change what parts of the story I drew and make the boat sturdier. Only one of my drawings were appealing to the first graders and I had to hold up my book to make sure it didn’t fall over.  I would also try to make the book more understandable to the first graders. Some words they didn’t understand such as ‘Oracle’ and ‘Minotaur’.

My Reflection


I made a book about Theseus and the Minotaur in the shape of a boat for the first graders.  I have learned that for next time I should use a more stable material than a pencil for a sail holder and that I should make a bigger boat for a bigger book so I can make the words easier to read. Finding the materials for the boat and the sail was super easy. Something really hard was making the boat and keeping the sail up straight. I have an awesome looking book and an interesting story but the sail is easy to tip and my book has a lot of words in it.  If I was to make another version of this I would make the boat bigger, have a stronger base, have a stronger material for the sail holder, and use clear tape. Making this book taught me more about building things with popsicles sticks and writing. I think it’s pretty good. The book and the story are both interesting.


Book creation


Today I finished my book. Here is the pictures of my process making it. I will check my design specification later to see if I accomplished my steps for a successful book. The First picture shows the body of my ship book. The next picture shows my first drawing of the king of Athens going from his kingdom to the next. The next one is the buried sword and sandals. The last picture is of my finished book.


  1. I need the font size twenty each.
  2.  I need it large enough for first graders to read it.
  3.  I’ll need to explain further on the villains I talk about.
  4.  I will also need interesting pictures.
  5.  I need a hook
  6.  I need the book to be small enough for the first graders to hold.
  7. I could also make models
  8.  I need to tell more about the minotaur.
