A Day in the Life

By Georgia and Mackenzie

Have you ever wondered what a day in your fellow classmates' lives would be like? This week we are going to find out. We are making a magazine on a day in our lives. Then, we will sell the magazines to help buy a 3D printer.

We first wrote a rough draft in Google Docs on these subjects: school life, extracurricular, family, hobbies, interests, what we think makes us special, what we would print with a 3D printer, and any other topics we wanted to. Then, we got a partner to proofread our papers to correct any errors. Next, we turned them in to Mrs. Conway to be graded. Mrs. Conway told us about the website we are using to make our 20-page magazines. It is called Lucidpress. It has many magazine formats that we could select. After selecting our format, we began designing our magazines.

Since we have a minimum number of pages to fill, we can also include pictures of us, our friends, a table of contents, and even advertisements for anything we want someone to give us (hint, hint). We think this was a very unique touch to add to our magazines. Some people even chose to add coloring pages or word searches to their magazines.

Overall, it was a very fun experience learning how to create our very own unique magazines to raise money for a 3D printer. We think that we may even use this in the future to create more informational magazines. We can't wait to see what people will create with a 3D printer!
