ExplorationExploration: Scroll it out!
Before there were paper books that were bound together the way we do today, many documents were written on scrolls, which were made of a paper-like material in which many sheets were attached to each other end-to-end.
Try making your own scroll! Use some tape or glue to attach a few pieces of paper. Draw or write your story or message onto the scroll, and then roll it up! If you want something to roll the scroll around, you can even put a wooden dowel on one end! (Or substitute for it with the empty roll from some paper towels!)
