Great culminating project ideas for a literature study of "The City of Ember". Includes a rubric. I have used this successfully in my 5th grade class for several years. The students really enjoy choosing among these projects and presenting them to the class.
Something about the amber lights I saw in my head for the lighting throughout this book made me remember the intensity of playing around after dark in the far corners of shopping parking lots. I don't care for the following books, but this first book in the series was amazing.
