  1. Visit the Lewes Historical Society site: Here is a direct link to the artifacts. Pick out one item from the collection of artifacts. Click on the artifact to learn more about it. Create a mystery about it. Think about The Lost Locket of Lewes and how Dr. Holland created a setting, characters, plot, conflict, resolution and conclusion. Consider using this Scholastic template to get started. (Gr. 3-6)
  2. Create a bookmark that will encourage a friend to read The Lost Locket of Lewes. Send a copy of it to Dr. Holland so she can post it on the website! (Gr. 1-5)
  3. Act out one scene from the book. Answer these questions: Why did you pick this scene? What were the characters thinking and feeling? How do you make it feel authentic?
  4. Design your own locket. Put a message or item inside of it. Consider these questions: Who owns the locket? What keepsake is in the locket? Is it a gift? Is it new or old? Does it tell a story? When was it made? (Gr. 2-6)
