The Big Dig – Character and Memento Creation

The Big Dig – Character and Memento Creation

Workshop for grades 4th through 12th

Working in pairs, students invent a fictional character and then create a memento that answers a question about that character’s life. The Big Dig explores those biographical details that allow us to identify and emotionally connect with a person. The project also investigates the objects that people collect and keep throughout their lives. What inspires us to hold onto tangible reminders of our experiences? What meaning can we find in other people’s keepsakes? The Big Dig builds teamwork and collaboration skills and enhances creativity, compassion, and empathy. This workshop is a great option for kinesthetic learners.
