Add on books, ages 8 to 11

This is a project that I got from a fellow blogger who got if from a book by an artist who corresponded this way. Yes, I simplified this, but the students had so much fun.
We took card stock, 8.5 by 8.5 inches. I have 8 students so I taped 8 sheets together and folded accordian style. We listed everything round that we could think of on the blackboard to use as inspiration if we needed. Then each student drew a picture on the front with something circular going off the edge. Then passed to the person on the left and drew a continuation of the circle on the next page. In the end, everyone got their book back with 8 different pages done by each student in the class. Confusing?  Just have a look below.
