FC: Camp Green lake | thTe | THE STANLEY YELNATS STORY
1: LABOR | My WORST ENEMY | All we had was two orange jump-suits, one for work, and one for sleep.
3: A Letter From Stanley's Mom. In the previous letter he sent to her, he acted as if he were at a real camp. | Dear Stanley, It was wonderful to hear from you. Your letter made me feel like one of the other moms who can afford to send their kids to summer camp. I know its not the same, but i am very proud of you for trying to make the best of a bad situation. Who Knows? Maybe something good will come of this. Your father thinks he is really close to a breakthrough on his sneaker project. I hope so. The landlord is threatening to evict us because of the odor. I feel sorry for the little old lady who lived in a shoe. It must have smelled awful. Love, Mom

10: 1. The handcuffs represent how and why The main character got himself into the mess at Camp Green Lake. He found some shoes that were up for auction, but had been stolen. As the found them, we was arrested by a cop that was driving by him. 2. The shovel represents Stanley's hardships at Camp Green Lake. Not only was his shovel his best friend, but also his worst enemy. It was a good thing because it helped him get past his task of digging a hole everyday, but he hated it because it was what gave him blisters and callus's. each boy at camp green lake had to dig a hole 5x5 feet every day. 3. I added the orange jumpsuit to my mixbook because it is what sanely wore every day. It represents his hard work and all of the times he had to dig holes at camp green lake. the counselors purposely gave each of the boys two jumpsuits. one was for sleeping in, and one was for working. 4. The photo of the caveman is there because of the nick-name that Stanley got in the story. because he was fat and tall, they called him the caveman. this helped develop his character because all of the boys had nicknames and it make him feel like he fit in if when they gave him one. 5. The canteen represents the energy that Stanley got during the day. he became very dependent on the canteen because it is what kept him alive out in the intense dessert heat. 6. The heart represents the love that stanley has for his family. when he wrote letters, he pretended as if he were at a real camp to keep his parents from worrying about him.
11: 7.I added a letter from the book that Stanley's mom wrote to him. this symbolizes his love for her. they have a close relationship, and in the letter he writes it as if he is having fun in a real camp. 8. The sunflower seeds are there from a part in the story where one of the boys stole a bag of seeds from one of the counselors. all the boys ate some, but when they passed it to stanley, he got caught. Stanley took full blame. This shows his dependability and that he is a good friend. 9. In the story, the warden had red nail polish that was made of rattlesnake poison. she said "it's only fatal when its wet". When Stanley went to her office because of the incident with the seeds, the scraped the back of his ear with this nail polish. it represents pain and learning a lesson. 10. One of stanleys friends, zero, gets really mad and is sent to the wardens office. he smashes the counselor over the head wit a shovel. this is a major part of the story because it represents a revolt and leading into the next part of the book. I chose to put this in because after this, stanleys friend, Zero ran away. 11. AFter a week, stanley decides to go look for Zero. he steals the camp pick-up truck, and starts speeding off into the dessert. Unfortunately, he crashes into one of the holes that the boys dug and has to run off on foot. The broken mirror represents hardships to come.
12: 12. After walking for a whole day, sanely finds zero in a hole in the ground under a boat, they rehydrate by drinking a substance called "Sploosh", it doesn't taste that good, but it keeps them alive. it represents hope. 13. after drinking the sploosh, Stanley and zero made their way over to a mountain. there was an old legend that said that onions grew up on the mountain, and that water ran up hill. When they got there, they lived off of onions for two weeks. They basically provided their means of life. 14. after two weeks of living off of onions, Stanley and zero sneak back to the camp to dig where Stanley found the little gold tube so long ago. they find a treasure chest, but can not move because there are poisonous lizards crawling around on them. 15. The treasure chest represents Stanley's new found wealth. After they got out of the hole, Stanley's lawyer showed up with two policemen. the warden and her crew were arrested for child labor and endangerment. Stanley found jewels and bank notes in the chest that were worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. his dad also found a cure for stinky feet.
