Creative activities and project ideas for any novel, story, or unit in history. Newly updated with rubrics & additional activities and handouts!
This 41-page bundle contains almost 100 creative student activities to use with any piece of literature. It includes several pages of templates and worksheets that are ready to go--just print and hand out to your students. I added rubrics and links to additional resources.
These activities can be used for any secondary age group--they aren't too young for seniors in high school, nor are they too old for 5th graders. The activities I included are those that are relevant to today's student: one who is tech-savvy and plugged-in to the rest of the world.
While they are great for every student, they can be especially useful for reluctant readers who want more hands-on activities AND advanced readers who need additional engaging and motivational assignments. This allows for differentiated assignments. "Creative activities" is one of my top-selling items and I use it often in my own classroom.
Newsweek printed a story in 2010 on the importance of creativity in education. Promoting creative activities increases students' problem-solving & critical-thinking skills, which, in turn, makes them smarter. They need creative activities to grow and learn. This bundle will help you not only with literature, but are adaptable for teaching many content areas!
