If you have ever flipped through an old family album, you have seen Polaroid pictures. The Polaroid camera could produce a fully printed image with the snap of a button.
Small pictures that kids create in the classroom are great additions to reading journals and serve as a guide for remembering important information.

Materials Needed Include:

black cardstock paper
chalk markers or chalk for writing
glue sticks or double-sided tape

3. Paste the black cards on top of the white cards. Allow a half of an inch space on the left and right sides of the new "picture".
