Fair Weather ideas


Junior Member
I am looking for literature ideas to use with the novel Fair Weather by Richard Peck. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I'm reading this novel during my lunch break. Love it! Love his historical novels in general! Off the top of my head, I am always impressed with Peck's gift for description and detail. I think an easy activity is to draw a scene from the novel.

I also think maybe drawing the characters as they look in the opening chapters and again in the new duds Mom buys to wear to Chicago. Kind of a makeover type activity!

Tell a scene from the point of view of another character would be interesting too. It could be a journal entry or a letter.

Making a scrapbook project of things the characters collect from their trip would be stimulated.

I haven't finished the novel, but I really think it's a wonderful read!
