Final Thoughts

Making these frames with river pebbles is something I've done with my students for years. I've never tried it with younger elementary students... only with students in second to fifth grade. I'm not sure younger students would have the patience or fine motor skills to do this.  Also, students in second to fifth grade understand wordplay, slang, figures of speech, and double meanings... which adds a little bit of fun and silliness to these frames.
