The Great Gatsby Book Report Project by Dylan Davis
For my book report project I chose to do a graffiti wall for the book The Great Gatsby. I made a brick wall out of red poster board and drawn on lines for the bricks. I chose five words that I thought related to the book and spray painted them onto the wall to create a graffiti look. The five words I chose are party, dream, love, eyes, and death.

They later reignited their love when they met again in New York but it was short lived because Daisy and Tom left town and disappeared. Eyes: I chose the word eyes because there was a billboard that had the eyes of Dr. T.J. Eckleburg on them. Those eyes...
