Welcome to Camp Green Lake - Does the punishment fit the crime...?
Our topic for this term is based around the novel HOLES by Louis Sachar. We have been learning how young Stanley Yelnats was sent to Camp Green Lake - a correctional facility for Young Offenders in the middle of the Texas Desert.
Initially, we all thought this was a gross miscarriage of justice, but what Stanley learns while he is there, might just explain all the bad luck his family have experienced in the past...!
We began our new topic with a Desert Day. We researched plants and animals which live in the desert regions of North America and we spent the afternoon created images of desert creatures using a variety of media.
