Cover It Up!

Want ORIGINAL and IMPRESSIVE report covers? Your report is sure to stand out with one-of-a-kind, easy-to-correct designs!

  • 30 to 60 minutes
  • Directions

    1. Students measure construction paper for a report cover and cut it to size with Crayola Scissors.
    2. Students decorate the cover with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. Illustrate the topic of the report, decorate puffy letters, or make stripes and dots. Make sure to create a strong visual impact! Here’s how we made the sample.
    3. Draw and color a square in the center. Color concentric squares in alternating colors until the entire page is filled.
    4. Use the eraser to rub away lines from the center out to the paper’s edges. It’s a spider web! Erase out the report title. Use another color to fill the area. Erase a large spider in the center of your web. Color it black. WOW!
