Tried & True Bookmaking: Magic Book

There are no other words to describe this book, but MAGIC. Your students will gasp in delight when they first peel open the magic or hidden section.
Magic books are effective for highlighting the effects of certain events in history. The magic section shows the changes and effects.
 
 Magic books are also perfect for writing and illustrating character change and development. Students draw and label the character at the beginning of a story,  writing about them on the left. Inside the magic section, draw and label how the character changes through the story, then write about the changes on the right side.
Watch the video below to learn how to make a magic book. Note: this works best with construction paper or card stock. Printer paper is too floppy for this type of book.

What do you envision using these magic books for with your students? I'd love to hear from you!
