This package provides students with everything they need to create a Paper Bag Book Report on ANY novel or short story! A complete unit - just print and teach!!!
All activities are classroom tested and include creative handouts, information sheets, detailed instructions, and templates! Two separate Paper Bag Book Report packages have been included: one for use with ANY novel, and one that has been modified for use with ANY short story!
This creative and engaging package includes the following:
-Title and Author Panel - Students use this template to illustrate the front panel of their paper bag. Students write the book title and author, and illustrate an image from the story/novel.
-Character and Key Scene Panel - Students use this template to create side panels for their paper bags, where they write about and illustrate characters and key scenes from the story/novel.
-Setting/Favorite Part - Students use this template to create a back panel for their paper bags, where they write about and illustrate the setting and favorite part of the novel/short story.
-Bag Filler Cards - Students use this template to create cards of information describing the items they choose to place in their paper bags. Items must represent characters or events in the story/novel.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS:
Could this package be useful to teach French as a second language? I am teaching a short novel to highschool students who are not supposed to speak any English in class but perhaps I could use your ideas and modify them. Perhaps I could use some of your templates. What do you think?
I think it would be great! The kids could simply follow the English instructions, and fill the information in in French :)
I think you will be really happy with your results - I did the project with a group of grade 7 Humanities students this year, and it was really successful. The students loved doing it, and the results were beautiful.
