    thats really hard to do with a wooden spoon .. not much room for detailing

    well first off... an evacuee would have lots of stuff... basically all they ever cared to see again along with supplies..   so maybe glue or hang small replicas of full bags ...a replica of a water jug .   a weapon or two.

    shabby, dirty torn clothing.   mangled unkempt hair.  possibly bloody spotts depending on how gory you want to be with it .

    maybe dragging along animals ..   (that one could ride, pack stuff on, and eat eventually)

    I think the idea is for HIM to figure it out, not you!!  With that in mind, let me add that drawing a face on the spoon and giving it  hair and"clothing" (he can research the type) would be a good place to start.  He might want to add some sort of writing that indicates which war the evacuee is trying to escape from.  He could even make a 3D Diorama. 

    Lead him with questions, but let him come up with the ideas on his own.  It is not YOU the teacher wants to teach, it is your son.  He'll figure it out, and you should allow him to do so.

    I would send a note to the teacher asking for more detail and why such a project was assigned. My wife was a teacher for 29 years. When she sent home a project, she provided the reasons for the project, the course it applied too and gave some examples of what could be done while encouraging everyone to come up with their own idea and assuring them they would be graded on effort and participation, and not the final project. She urged parents to offer suggestions, but to let the child do the work.
