After a recent trip to the Minute Man National Historic Park we read the book Paul Revere’s Ride by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Ted Rand. We looked at the lanterns we saw at the park. We talked about one or two lanterns and what was important about it. We also talked about how the poem is different than what really happened. That is was someone else who finished the ride and not Paul Revere.
After we finished talking about the book we made lanterns to hang in the window. What you need: wax paper, brown, yellow, & white construction paper, yellow and orange tissue paper, and glue.
Rose and Amelia covered the plastic wrap with glue.
The girls put on the yellow and orange tissue paper.
They glued on the candle in the center of the picture.
They glued on all four side of the lantern.
They put the top on the lantern.
The finishing touch was adding the flame on the candle.
We hung the finished product in the window.
