It’s easy to make standard magic-lantern picture slides. Cut out pieces of acetate or freezer bag about 3 ¼” x 4” to make the slides. Draw your pictures on the slides with permanent magic markers. Be careful not to get the permanent magic marker on your clothes or the furniture! The best pictures have solid, dark colors—not just outlines. Make the dramatic action clear. You can project your
slides with the lantern you made (previous page), or use an overhead projector at school. If you used a freezer bag, the frame described on the next page will help keep it steady.
