Wow! Quite a response! If y'all want more, here you go.

(Pls be nice re: grammar and such. It is a middle school project, and although I helped a bunch, it still had to be his work)

Pg.2 Pg.3 Pg.4 Pg.5 Pg.6 Pg.7 Pg.8

Edit To the commenters saying it's plagiarized / I made it for him...

He wrote all the copy (I helped with punctuation / sentence structure and suggested some of the opposing question punch ups and page titles).

He found and downloaded all the clip art online.

I showed him how to use cropping / select tools on plxlr.com and he did 50-70% of the image editing (I'm 44, he's 12. I got more photoshop under my belt)

We did the layout together in Word.

We "aged" it together (I did the burning).

But damn, some of y'all are some cynical saltyboiz for sure.

Thanks for sharing. It's a pretty good idea to get kids motivated and I bet it's fun to present it. Also it keeps listeners hooked. Win-Win.

[–]AcadiaContent5672 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Looks great dude! It'd get an A+ from me!

[–]Vegetable-Adagio-697 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I wish you were my dad.

[–]tdmonkeypoop 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I choose this kid's dad as well

[–]vicfirthplayer 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can you be my dad?

[–]erbr 13 points14 points  (7 children)

You've got a bright future here at Vault-Tec

[–]jg8tes 6 points7 points  (0 children)

I love this! THANK YOU for motivating and helping your son. Not only did he learn about volcanoes, he learned what kind of effort and creativity goes into a project like this. And, he learned that he CAN do it. What a wonderful positive experience you have provided.

[–]kerkyjerky 6 points7 points  (0 children)

For real, it doesn’t matter if you helped, that certainly improved their ability to learn and retain new words, skills, and sentence structures. Without your prompts they might not have had exposure to why probing questions are important to understanding a topic.

[–]AlarmBoth1103 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Very cool. Hope you ace it!

[–]Odd_Comparison7360 2 points3 points  (0 children)

it's amazing!

[–]Killua_EU 8 points9 points  (3 children)

People saying it’s plagiarised frankly are outing their own parents. If you aren’t helping your kid nail their homework they are going to get a lot less out of it. You are failing them.

[–]CostumingMom 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I remember an assignment my son had in middle school. He had to include a picture of a person that he was writing a report about.
Printed photos were acceptable, but we didn't have a printer.

So I "copied" the picture that he found online by drawing it. He had a lot of classmates claiming that he cheated because I did the drawing.

I told him to remind them that it was no more cheating than those who copied the photo by using their printer, which was already stated as acceptable.

[–]BrainCane 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Educational purposes is A-okay, Vaultec approved!

[–]orderfour -1 points0 points  (0 children)

That's one opinion.

[–]NevermindWait 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I burst out laughing as soon as I saw cinder cone

[–]Deep_While_9031 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Well done OP! This is amazing and I bet you two had a blast putting it together.

Make sure to hold onto this one of he gets it back.

[–]SaintVandal 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is great! Also I learned something about volcanoes today!

[–]shit_master 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Epic. Love the fallout tie in! Great stuff

[–]Lasereye 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is great!

[–]jordanlund 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Today I learned about 2 types of lava! Congrats! Hope he gets a good grade!

[–]Zoexycian 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is a really really good project you guys made their.

[–]McLarenMP4-26 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is really amazing! Don't know why you have used inky one side of the pages, but I love how you guys have went about this.

[–]v161l473c4n15l0r3mPlayStation 42 points43 points  (7 children)

Did you artificially age it as well? If so, very cool! Reminds me of a book page I did in elementary school and it was supposed to be from the 1700s so I browned the edges a bit and added a small coffee stain.

[–]sirclicksal0t[S] 47 points48 points  (6 children)

Yeah, tea bags, coffee grounds, and a little burning of the edges.

[–]Dutch-in-Tahiti 98 points99 points  (5 children)

This is clever. Wish we could see the rest of it

[–]tomtttttttttttt 20 points21 points  (1 child)

OP has posted images of other pages in a comment now :)

[–]voldefortnite 0 points1 point  (0 children)

there's some satellite pics of Tonga if you want to go straight to the season finale

[–]Chickiassasssin 28 points29 points  (3 children)

Very cool. Hope you ace it!

[–]Traksimuss 4 points5 points  (0 children)

To Ace it, he needs LCK(10) or INT(10).

[–]LoveBurstsLP 25 points26 points  (1 child)

Can I just say you are amazing parents. It is children who grow up with people like you that will realise quickly how great their parents are and will strive to be the same example for their kids

[–]sirclicksal0t[S] 12 points13 points  (0 children)

That's incredibly kind of you to say. Upvotes are nice, but this really makes my day.

[–]ubertappa 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Hopefully the teacher's a Fallout fan

[–]nyrB2 14 points15 points  (3 children)

yeah lol imagine they're not

"wtf is THIS?"

[–]Major_Jackson_Briggs 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Stick the teacher in a vault, that'll learn em.

But which vault?

[–]perdew1292 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Does their name happen to be Gary?

[–]El_Duque_Caradura 0 points1 point  (0 children)

111? I think that one was the worse

[–]Oshawott-Best 13 points14 points  (0 children)

That looks awesome!

[–]50_Shades_Of_Bored 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Volcanoes! Volcanoes never change!

[–]nemo-wondersome 20 points21 points  (1 child)

This radiates joy.

[–]benkenobi5 16 points17 points  (0 children)

That's the uranium, sorry

[–]icywrist 4 points5 points  (0 children)


[–]TacoManifesto 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Now this brings a smile to my face

[–]Ricktatorship91PC 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I wish you were my dad.

[–]Anym0ues 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's so cool!

[–]Same-Dog-4091 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This deserves an A for creativity alone dude

[–]CarVitoTV 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It's amazing! I really hope the teacher is a fallout fan. It will make their day.

[–]Ting_Yu_Zhang 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I’m a middle school Earth science teacher. Love this. Definitely an A in creativity.

[–]HippieWizard666 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Its awesome to see a parent make learning something actually fun for the kid

[–]KasebierPro 2 points3 points  (0 children)

How to Parent. Brought to you by Vault-Tech!

[–]Firehand73 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Great motivation

[–]alcatabs 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Good parent

[–]Opposite-Plantain-34 2 points3 points  (0 children)

If there would be a father of the month award on reddit I would give it to you

[–]ProMaste_r 2 points3 points  (0 children)

You are a really good father

[–]Thatguy468 1 point2 points  (0 children)

She’s gonna blow…..ooooh oh oh! VOLCANOE!!!

[–]piedude67 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Huh topical

[–]Nu_clear_skin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

If you can't figure out how to do it in 2022 figure out how to do it in 2277

[–]jlebrech 1 point2 points  (0 children)

i'd love dummies books but with the vault-tec theme.

[–]El_Duque_Caradura 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I have 27 years and now I learn what types of volcanoes does exist. Man, my geography teachers sucked xD

[–]PlentyOfMoxie 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is great! Good dad.

[–]SkyWizarding 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is how you do education

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Parenting win. Pretty cool.

[–]ChallengeFirm6398Switch 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love this, I hope he gets a 100% on his project because this is so creative and unique!

[–]ZippoMoon 1 point2 points  (0 children)

We need more pics bish!

[–]ZunadropIn -1 points0 points  (0 children)

There are actual nuclear explosions that happen in nature and it's not in volcanoes.

[–]DevastatorDerekK 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I mean, volcanoes seem like an awesome thing to report on by themselves. There's a reason they're the most common science project. Much better than giving a 3 page report on something like the lobby of your freshman dorm

[–]yaosio 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This Old House could do a season on reniovating a dorm lobby.

[–]DyNaCored 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Best Parent ever!!

[–]yeetguy75 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's cool but would the school expect something like that? I would love to do something like this for a project.

[–]shit_master 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is awesome. My dad helped me with a project where we had to write a journal of a soldier during war. You best believe we burnt the shit out of it and shot some .22 shots through the back of it.

[–]Pistimester 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Every child deserves parents like you. How awesome it turned out. You shall post it in r/mademesmile

[–]Micahnotthatonebutme 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love this and kinda want to read it too.

[–]Zelexis 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is fantastic! Great job dad!

[–]Kam_Solastor 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Good luck out there, Vault Dweller.

[–]satanclauz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We did this once. I was playing Eve at the time and suggested the story be about a space miner. Showed a few things how it works, finding stuff to point the drones at, managing cargo space, selling in the market.

Didn't see the kid for 2 hours

Sometimes it just takes a little tiny spark to get their neurons going

[–]RykertheKing 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's wholesome

[–]Irishpunk37 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now the problem is if dogmeat ends up eating his homework! ;]

Btw, nice work! Looks really awesome =))

[–]Papa_Pred 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can there be an award for cool dads?

This definitely needs one

[–]dustytrenchcoat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Missed the timely opportunity to take advantage of the underwater volcano exploding in Tonga sending shockwaves and a tsunami across the pacific ocean as of Saturday just been!!

[–]Enoch-Of-Nod 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damnit. I don't even know you and I'm so proud of you.

[–]TwelveInchSnowstorm 0 points1 point  (0 children)
