Use this motivating FOLDABLE FINAL PROJECT after reading "A Christmas Carol." I use it with the dramatized version, but it could easily be tweaked to fit the novel. Students will be showing their knowledge of VOCABULARY as well as the interconnectedness of the ELEMENTS OF LITERATURE as they complete this foldable/pop-up book. They will also work to create a short, companion INFORMATIONAL TEXT that will boost understanding of the story. This activity can be completed independently or at stations around the room. Enjoy and have fun with a masterpiece of literature!
