PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

A fun activity and new twist on the boring character sketch and chapter summaries! NEWLY UPDATED to include the newer Facebook layout and timeline!

Students can choose a character from the novel and create a pretend Facebook profile, complete with chapter-by-chapter status updates. They have to find specific information about that character in order to fill out the profile information, yet it's such an engaging activity, they don't even realize they are learning. The status updates force them to summarize the chapter from a character's perspective. Even the most reluctant learners find this assignment fun. Included is a teacher's guide to a facebook page for Katniss Everdeen.

Even though this is designed to be used specifically with The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, I added a few generic pages at the end of the document so you could use it with other novels, as well.

UPDATED with templates in Microsoft Word AND Mac's Pages.

This IS included in my Complete Hunger Games Unit (within the Student Survival Guide), found here:

This is basically a screen shot of FaceBook. I don't think it is worth $3.75. I thought I would have more in text editing options, but really you can't type on the documents very easily.
On  April 27, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
I'm sorry you feel this way, JShimkus, but I can guarantee it's not a screenshot. I created the page and the examples myself, placing each and every element on a blank page and matching fonts. Because students in my class struggled with the elements, I grouped them together. I think it's pretty clear what you are getting in the thumbs and the preview download, so I'm not sure what you were expecting. It IS, after all, supposed to resemble Facebook. Regardless, I appreciate your feedback and am sorry you are not satisfied.

I bought this for my fifth grader because they are using it in class. The entire class has enjoyed. May I ask if we are doing something wrong? We can not type into the pages. We downloaded and copied the PDFs but seemed to be locked out for typing in his own thoughts.
On  April 27, 2013Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Callieshell - the PDF documents are not editable. Only the Microsoft Word and Pages documents are. Hope that helps! -Tracee

Wow, the kids loved this. I made kids stand on one side of the room or the other. They couldn't contain their reasons. They has great fun. With my next class, I will do one or two a week and give awards for kids who can convince another kid to change sides because of their reasoning. Very alive response.

On  June 28, 2012,  Ulrike H. asked:
When you make updates do people that purchased the CD's get the updates too?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  June 28, 2012Tracee Orman answered:
Hi Ulrike! If you email me, I can mail the updates. Most people have the most recent on the CD, though. I always update that first because it's easiest. (I've been updating the thumbnails recently, then will update the digital files next.) The only thing I can't "update" is if I create any new products that were not included on the CD or digital because of lack of space. -Tracee
n/a
On  January 15, 2012,  Sharon M. asked:
you state that this can be used with other novels. How difficult is it to do this? will the school blocker allow this? It sounds like such a great idea! Will students have to be online to do this, or is this an offline simulation?
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  January 15, 2012Tracee Orman answered:
It is a printable activity (PDF) or used with Microsoft Word or Mac's Pages; it's not used with the real Facebook or on the internet, so you don't have to worry about online blockers. I just updated it to include the new templates (since Facebook is bent on changing their layout every few months!). Thanks for your inquiry. -Tracee
