      A spine-tingling, suspenseful true story of escape during World War II. Spring, ; Stalag Luft III, Germany: every prisoner in the Nazi camps had one thought in mind--to get out. The organization was in place, with men digging hidden passageways and squads dispersing yellow sand in the middle of soccer scrimmages. Forgers worked to create false travel documents. Title: How To Make A Tunnel Book Author: Ed Hutchins Created Date: Wednesday, Ma PM.

        The tunnel book starts off as a regular accordion book and then halfway it flips up exposing a tunnel to the back page. It's a great project to incorporate writing and the visual arts. The tunnel section can represent a transition in the story, literal or figurative. Runners race over giant bridges, through a museum, in a subway tunnel and more fascinating locations. It’s printed on sturdy paper that’s perfect for coloring with markers or crayons, too. Answers for each “page” are on the back of that page.
