A Jumpsuit Fit for a King

Elvis was known as the King of Rock n Roll. He was part of a movement that changed the history of music forever. He and a number of other performers introduced a new way for teenagers to dance and have fun. Elvis basked in the spotlight with glitz and glamour, wearing his famous jumpsuits that are fit only for a king.

Here, we embellished a photocopy of a drawing of Elvis with stick-on gems from the dollar bin at the craft store.

I love how my students emphasized the bell-bottoms and some gave him "sunglasses." To add more glam to his suit, we used Crayola metallic colored pencils in addition to regular ones. Don't forget to make the belt real big!
