Student Adaptations Materials Needed 

Realizing what the characters possess in their artifacts, the teacher will bring in something that is important enough for them to have in an artifact to show the children an example of what they are doing. There will be a class discussion on artifacts and what could be important enough to hold on to Read the passage in Chapter 18 that shows the emotion of protection within Cassia and the disappointed emotion in Bram. Then discuss. The Students will complete this lesson on their own. They will have to search within their own possessions of something that they will have to keep if everything else were to be taken away. In the novel the artifact has to fit in their hand, but for this project, it has to be something that can be displayed in class. The item has to be accompanied by a write up, 1-2 pages, explaining the artifact and what it means to them. If the student is uncomfortable presenting, or has trouble writing etc. There will be a 1 on 1 presentation with the teacher and extra help for writing or a Speak and Type program will be provided for the student to speak to as the program copies it to the electronic screen.
